Abstract Today, security is considered to be an important aspect of multi-tier application development. Thoroughly researched,concepts for access control exist and have been proven in mainframe computing. However, they are often not used,in today’s development,of multi -tier applications. One reason may be the lack of appropriate reusable components,that support application developers that frequently have to re-invent the wheel when it comes to access controls. The goal of this paper is to promote awareness,of security ,issues ,when ,developing applications and to illustrate a suitable approach,for that. Our ,framework ,called ,GAMMA ,(Generic Authorization Mechanisms,for Multi-Tier Applications) offers several authentication, access control, and auditing,mechanisms.,Access control models,can,be combined,or use d simultaneously in,order to provide application-specific ,and ,highly ,customizable mechanisms. Moreover, due to its component-based structure, new security models and additional approaches,for authentication or auditing can easily be added.
