We describe a role based, policy driven, Privilege Management Infrastructure, in which the authorisation tokens are roles held as X.509 attribute certificate stored in LDAP directories. Users are assigned roles, and roles are granted privileges. The authorisation policy says which roles and attribute certificates are to be trusted, and what access rights are to be granted to each role. The authorisation policy is written in XML by the service provider. The access control decision function(ADF) is a policy driven engine that makes the granted or denied access decisions. The ADF is written in Java, and is completely generic so that it can be built into any e-construction application. We have currently built it into two construction applications, E-tendering and E-planning, and these are described.
