A Calculus for Access Control in Distributed Systems

We study some of the concepts, protocols, and algorithms for access control
in distributed systems, from a logical perspective. We account for how a
principal may come to believe that another principal is making a request,
either on his own or on someone else’s behalf. We also provide a logical
language for access control lists, and theories for deciding whether requests
should be granted.
