Modern enterprise systems need to comply to complex security policies. Due to legal regulations such as Basel II or HIPAA, the enforcement of these security policies needs to be carefully monitored and analyzed. The monitoring of complex and often dynamic access control requirements results in a vast amount of information that needs to be analyzed both in case of incidents and during regular audits. We present an extensible framework for managing and analyzing security policies during their whole life cycle. Our framework integrates versioning of policies and logfiles with animation and static analysis techniques. For example, this combination allows for comparing different versions of security policies or the replaying and animation of system traces based on logfiles.
