the emergence of "Internet of Things" breaks previous traditional thinking, which integrates physical infrastructure and network infrastructure into unified infrastructure. There will be a lot of resources or information in IoT, so computing and processing of information is the core supporting of IoT. In this paper, we introduce "Service-Oriented Computing" to solve the problem where each device can offer its functionality as standard services. Here we mainly discuss the access control issue of

This paper puts forward a model of Workflow-oriented Attributed Based Access Control (WABAC), and design an access control framework based on WABAC model. The model grants permissions to subjects according to subject atttribute, resource attribute, environment attribute and current task, meeting access control request of SOC. Using the approach presented can effectively enhance the access control security for SOC applications, and prevent the abuse of subject permissions.
