The popularity of role-based access control (RBAC) policies within industry has generated considerable interest in the research community. Since XML has become a de facto standard for data representation, most RBAC policies are expressed in XML. Although XML documents can be very large, no succinct implementations for these policies exist. This paper describes a novel implementation (not previously proposed) for schema-less and streamed XML documents to provide authorized users with the results of queries on compressed documents. The designer of the policy does not need to be aware of any implementation details. Results of this research will be essential for industry, which could take advantage of efficient implementations of RBAC policies.
