Abstract: Collaborative environments need access control to data and resources to increase working cooperation efficiently yet effectively. Several approaches are proposed and multiple access control models are recommended in this domain. In this paper, four Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) based collaborative models are selected for analysis and comparison. The standard RBAC model, Team-based Access Control (TMAC) model, Privacy-aware Role-Based Access Control (P-RBAC) model and Dynamic Sharing and Privacy-aware RBAC (DySP-RBAC) model are used for experiments. A prototype is developed for each of these models and pros and cons of these models are discussed. Performance and sharing parameters are used to compare these collaborative models. The standard RBAC model is found better by having a quick response time for queries as compared to other RBAC models. The DySP-RBAC model outperforms other models by providing enhanced sharing capabilities.
