A privacy-aware role-based access control model extends RBAC to express highly complex privacy-related policies, including consideration of such features as conditions and obligations. Because it's based on the RBAC model, the full-fledged P-RBAC solution is easy to deploy in systems already adopting RBAC, thus allowing seamless integration of access control and privacy policies.
