Aspect-oriented software development techniques can help modularize the enforcement of application-specific access control policies. Middleware platforms must cater to a variety of applications. The access control services integrated in these platforms support only access control policies with limited expressiveness and typically enforce only an invocation access policy. Enforcing such a policy only takes into account information in the method invocation and fails to include application state or context in the access decision process
