Abstract

This article relates to a method for controlling access to a shared data base comprising the steps of (1) creating a three-way concordance of user, entity (data element), and access rights (read-only, read/write), together with a user profile by attribute, (2) executing an authenticated log-on by a user, (3) inserting at least one request into the system, and (4) accessing only those entities showing a necessary match between a predetermined number of requests and table attributes.
