Opportunity at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Access Control (Authorization) Systems
Information Technology Laboratory, Computer Security Division
Please note: This Agency only participates in the February and August reviews.
The focus of this program including policy, model, verification, test and management for Access Control (Authorization) Systems. The program will research architectures and mechanisms of access or privilege control systems for data sharing in single, distributed, or mobile environments as well as learn the limitations and practical approaches of their applications. The program will also research testing and verification methods for accurate and efficient fault detection and correction technologies for implementing access control models and policies.
