Abstract [en]

Access control systems are an important concept in the area of computer security. In this master thesis different solutions are analyzed. The focus is on a tool called DW Access. DW Access is developed by Pdb Datasystem AB. A comparison was done that showed that DW Access is lacking some important functionality. After the comparison a base model for an access control system was designed. The new design includes concepts like relation- ships, replacements and time limited access. It also works for generic subjects and objects in the system. This design was later partly implemented in DW Access.

The conclusions from this thesis work is that DW Access is a unique tool and there is a market for the application or similar applications. The new functionality was one step forward and the evaluation showed that the potential users liked the new concepts. But it is a very open area because of very unique requirements on the market.
