Summary:
The use of formal methods has become increasingly important for software development. In this thesis, we present the formal specifications for a method-based authorization model for object-oriented databases. We also formalize a proposed user group structuring. We start from an existing OMT (Object Modeling Technique) description and we use Z as language for formal specification. This specification gives a precise definition of the policies and functions of this authorization system. This can be used as a basis for implementation and possible verification in those cases where a high level of security is required.
