Abstract
ABSTRACT: Foresight Wireless, LLC, proposes a novel access control system, Proximity/Risk Ontology-based Access Control Technology (PROACT), to meet the Air Force objective, namely"develop a standards-based access control mechanism that will dynamically adjust data access for individuals based on their proximity to others/organizations in terms of attributes (e.g. location, mission, assignment) derived from existing sources."PROACT is an innovative approach that determines relevance of data to users based on proximity and the risk in providing the data to the user. PROACT utilizes novel semantic models in order to provide this capability. PROACT will be designed such that it can be implemented in a scalable manner that conforms to open architecture such as SOA and therefore easily integrates with IT systems. In Phase I, Foresight Wireless will fully specify and design PROACT and prove its performance and feasibility through system modeling and prototyping efforts. The PROACT product has enormous potential for military and commercial applications. A prototype PROACT product will be designed and developed in Phase I and Phase II, which will then be commercialized in Phase III. BENEFIT: In military market, PROACT can be leveraged to extend existing access control methods and enable dynamic information access capabilities required by User Defined Operational Picture (UDOP). PROACT would rapidly and accurately identify and provide information pertinent to the users based on proximity measures. In civilian markets, PROACT can be used for context-sensitive access provision by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for domestic security operations; by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for tracking and responding to public health crises; and by corporations for dynamic information access.
