Abstract: Access control and Data confidentiality are key technology to ensure the security of system and to protect the privacy of the users. The modified Collaborative Trust Enhanced Security (CTES) model has an inbuilt access control mechanism for Kerberos protocol itself to enforce the access control policy directly into the Client system node. This paper explains the hybrid access control model with Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) for modified CTES framework through Kerberos protocol. Hence, it retains the concept of “role”, “group” and “attributes” for the user which are necessary to protect data privacy in the system. Data confidentiality for the stored data in Cloud is achieved by cryptographic techniques. Gnu Privacy Guard (GnuPG) based certificate is capable enough to verify the identity of the correspondent in information exchange as well as the information integrity. It is a strongest authentication technique where the user is asked to provide his/her digital ID for validation in the Server and enables Single sign-on services for Kerberos Authorization in modified CTES model. In this paper, it is proposed for a new Kerberos Authorization with Hybrid Access Control Model (KAHAC) for single-domain systems and multi-domain systems in Public Cloud based on roles, attributes, groups, access modes and the type of resources.
