© 2004 Ravi Sandhu www.list.gmu.edu 3 SPM Protection Scheme 1.A finite set of entity types T partitioned into subject types TS and object types TO. 2.A finite set of right symbols R partitioned into inert rights RI and control rights RC. Ticket types are thereby T X R 3.A finite collection of local link predicates {link i | i = 1... N}. 4.A filter function f i : TS X TS 2 T X R corresponding to each link i. 5.The demand function d: TS 2 T X R. 6.The can-create relation cc TS X T. Equivalently, cc: TS 2 T. 7.A local create-rule for each pair in cc.

© 2004 Ravi Sandhu www.list.gmu.edu 8 SPM create operation object creation cr(a.parent, b.child) {b.child/x:c | x RI} subject creation cr(a.parent,b.child) = LEFT | RIGHT LEFT {a.parent/x:c, b.child/x:c | x R} RIGHT {a.parent/x:c, b.child/x:c | x R} LEFT goes to parent RIGHT goes to child A A
