A Proposed Framework for Access Control in the Cloud and BYOD Environment


Khalid Almarhabi, Kamal Jambi, Fathy Eassa and Omar Batarfi


Vol. 18  No. 2  pp. 144-152


The new trend to bring your own devices (BYODs) to work to connect to the network is a fast-growing and popular trend. These devices represent a high security threat to the organization’s network. BYODs can be contaminated with spyware and viruses that enable the device to access private information. BYODs can have disastrous results when improperly used. BYOD risks include unauthorized changes to policies and information, leaking sensitive information to the public, the financial and legal implications of a breach, and the loss of productivity for the organization. The intention of this paper is to introduce a new architectural framework to control the risks of BYODs. This solution is derived from large volumes of research into information privacy and security to manage and control access to enterprise networks by BYODs. The proposed architecture aims to reduce restrictions and enforce access control policies in the cloud and BYOD environment in a soft and secure manner with an independent platform.
