Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a type of cloud computing in which a tenant rents access to a shared, typically web-based application hosted by a provider. Access control for SaaS should enable the tenant to control access to data that are located at the provider based on tenant-specific access control policies. To achieve this, state-of-practice SaaS applications provide application-specific access control configuration interfaces and as a result, the tenant policies are evaluated at the provider side. This approach does not support collaboration between provider-side and tenant-side access control infrastructures, thus scattering tenant access control management and forcing the tenant to disclose sensitive access control data.
