We provide a short survey on the terminology of database security in database federations and give, as the main task, a taxonomy of the major design choices concerning access control in database federations. The taxonomy is organized in the categories granularity, authorization, and access control. Additionally, the impact of distribution, heterogeneity and autonomy, three characteristics of database federations, is examined for each of the design choices.
