Whilst existing research addresses protection or information contained in generic XML formats, none address the protection of information in document formats based on XML. This research addresses this void by suggesting an innovative scheme to protect contents of ODF documents using the XACML access control model. This study is significant to those conducting studying mechanisms of document security, members of the standardization community and information security providers of enterprises. The study conducted in this research may also have commercial value as a product developed to secure ODF document contents.
