The increasing need to share information in dynamic environments has created a requirement for risk-aware access control systems. In this paper, we present a metamodel for risk-aware authorization that captures the key aspects of a system in relation to risk mitigation. In particular, we develop various risk-aware models as instances of the metamodel that broadly differ in the form of risk mitigation that is used (system obligations and user obligations respectively), and study how those obligations are applied to reduce and account for the risk incurred by granting access. Unlike system obligations, an access control system cannot guarantee that user obligations are fulfilled. We propose two approaches to defining risk-aware authorization semantics that takes unfulfilled obligations into account: one is to restrict users' future access because of prior failure to fulfill obligations, and the other is to "reward" users who have been diligent in fulfilling their obligations by permitting risky access requests.
