The concept of independent revocation is described where an authorizer specifies revocation independently of the current status of authorization. Some of the aspects relating to the implementation of a system providing independent revocation were discussed. Revocation is first discussed in terms of formal models of authorization. The concept of an access matrix is introduced, and extended to allow for the specification of a condition for database systems. Then the general idea of independent revocation is considered in terms of this extended access matrix. Second, an actual implementation of a system which provides independent revocation is presented. The system, RRDS (Relational Replicated Database System) provides a DISALLOW command which gives the authorizer the capability to specify the data that a user should not be allowed to access. Finally, the applicability of independent revocation to database system in general is explored. It is concluded that independent revocation is applicable to a variety of systems, including some major systems currently in existence
