    Relation-Based Access Control (RelBAC) is an access control model for the Web scenarios, which represents permissions as relations between users and objects. By exploiting the formalization of RelBAC model in Description Logics (DL), sophisticated access control policies can be directly encoded as DL formulas. This facilitates the administration with design time reasoning on hierarchies, memberships, propagations, separation of duties, etc. and helps with run time reasoning to make access control decisions. All these reasoning can be performed through state of the art, off-the-shelf DL reasoners.
