Hierarchical access control is an important and traditional problem in information security. In 2001, Wu proposed an elegant solution for hierarchical access control by the secure-filter. Jeng and Wang presented an improvement of Wu et. al.'s method by the ECC cryptosystem. However, secure-filter method is insecure in dynaminc access control. Lie, Hsu and Tripathy, Paul pointed out some secure leaks on the secure-filter and presented some improvements to eliminate these secure flaws. In this paper, the authors revise the secure-filter in Jeng-Wang method and propose another secure solutions in hierarchical access control problem.
