Multidimensional data structures are widely used in modern information technologies. They sometimes contain private or other sensitive information. We argue that attribute-based encryption is a handy tool for access control to multidimensional data structures, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of ciphertext-policy and key-policy attribute-based encryption for this task. We propose a scheme of attribute management for multidimensional data structures.
