As the Semantic Web has been applied in the Web Services to integrate data across different applications with the increasing development of the Semantic Web technologies, it is essential to maintain the security of the organizations involved in the Semantic Web Services. Security is a crucial concern for commercial and mission critical applications in Web-based environments. To guarantee the security of the web services, security measures must be considered to protect against unauthorized disclosure, transfer, modification, or destruction, whether accidental or intentional. Access control is a kind of security measurements to guarantee the service processes, which is defined to allow resource owners to define, manage, and enforce the access conditions for each resource. In this paper, an attribute based access control model with semantic interoperation (SABAC, for short) is proposed to specify access control over attributes defined in domain ontologies. The SABAC model between the service requester and service provider secures the access to the Semantic Web Services.
