This article is an experiment leveraging web ontology language to develop and evaluate Mandatory Access Control with Bell-La Padula (BLP) attributes for a Multi-Level Protection lattice model. The semantic web is built on top of the www to make data machine-readable so data processing and administration can be improved. The Web ontology language is a semantic web computational logic-based language for representing complex knowledge in a semantic format. Construct dominance relationships between variables within the lattice model and run different queries to see if the subject with security clearance can read or write to the object with security classification using the Multi-level protection (MLP) ontology. Furthermore, the ontology would only enable information to move from items with lower categorization to entities with higher classification by utilizing BLP characteristics.
