The security related characteristics of entities, the contextual information that describes them and the previous or concurrent usages exercised in the system are the criteria that the Usage CONtrol (UCON) family of models utilizes in the usage decision process. In this paper, a detailed classification of the aforementioned criteria along with a representative usage scenario for each category is presented, unveiling a number of UCON's limitations. In turn, a Use-based Usage CONtrol (UseCON) model is proposed that provides, for the creation of a usage decision, enhanced handling of information regarding context and previous or current usages exercised in the system. The enhanced capabilities of the proposed approach are demonstrated and discussed with the use of detailed application examples.
