In pervasive computing environments, a user can access resources and services from any where and at any time; thus a key security challenge in these environments is the design of an effective access control model which is aware of context modifications. Changes in context may trigger changes in authorizations. In this paper, we propose a new context-aware access control model based on role-based access control model for pervasive computing environments. We assign roles to users dynamically based on the long-term context information and tune active role's permissions according to the short-term context information of the users and environment.
