More and more information is distributed in XML format, both on corporate Intranets and on the global Net. In this paper an Access Control System for XML is described allowing for definition and enforcement of access restrictions directly on the structure and content of XML documents, thus providing a simple and effective way for users to protect information at the same granularity level provided by the language itself.
