We present a logic for specifying policies where access requestsfl
can have effects on the authorization state. The logic is semanticallyfl
defined by a mapping to Transaction Logic. Using this approach,fl
updates to the state are factored out of the resource guard, thus enhancing maintainability and facilitating more expressive policies that take the history of access requests into account. We also present a sound and complete proof system for reasoning about sequences of access requests.fl
This gives rise to a goal-oriented algorithm for finding minimal sequencesfl
that lead to a specified target authorization state.
