Few tools exist for decomposing complex security policies into simpler modules. The policy-engineering tools that do exist either encapsulate entire policies as atomic, indecomposable modules or allow ne-grained modularization but are complicated and lack policy visualization capabilities. This paper brie y presents PoliSeer, the first tool the authors are aware of that allows complex policies to be specified, visualized, modified, and enforced as compositions of simpler policy modules.
