We propose an approach for conformance testing of implementations required to enforce access control policies specified using the Temporal Role-Based Access Control (TRBAC) model. The proposed approach uses Timed Input-Output Automata (TIOA) to model the behavior specified by a TRBAC policy. The TIOA model is transformed to a deterministic se-FSA model that captures any temporal constraint by using two special events Set and Exp. The modified W-method and integer-programming-based approach are used to construct a conformance test suite from the transformed model. The conformance test suite so generated provides complete fault coverage with respect to the proposed fault model for TRBAC specifications.
