Everyone is moving towards an era where location information will be necessary for access control. The use of location information can be used for enhancing the security of an application, for critical applications, such as the military. A formal model for location-based access control is needed that increases the security of the application and ensures that the location information cannot be exploited to cause harm. In this paper, the authors show how the SSL VPN (Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network) model can be extended to incorporate the notion of location.
