Policy based Access Control for a RDF Store

Resource Description Format (RDF) stores have formed an essen-tial part of many semantic web applications. Current RDF store systems have primarily focused on efficiently storing and query-ing large numbers of triples. Little attention has been given to how triples would be updated and maintained or how access to store can be controlled. In this paper we describe the motivation for an RDF store with complete maintenance capabilities and access control. We propose a policy based access control model providing control over the various actions possible on an RDF store. Finally, we discuss on how the Hypertext Transport Proto-col (HTTP) and its extensions can be used to provide communica-tion with the store.
