Abstract

Resource security is maybe one of the most important features for any distributed computating on the Web. In this article a new adaptive approach shall be presented realizing the authorization and identification of a remote user using fingerprints built from a set of typical system data related to the respective user. The suggested approach avoids the use of secured, trusted third machines and adapts access rights using a fine-grained set of confidence levels for a possibly changing group of users.
