Knowledge Management System (KMS) is such an application of computer based communications and information systems that grant sharing and transferring knowledge effectively; furthermore with the evolution of Internet, KMS has improved its knowledge process and activities where it can be accessed with varied form of technologies such as email, video conferencing and so forth, from dispersed geographical area. Hence, security becomes major issue as knowledge is an intellectual property of an organization and it must be well managed. Mostly the issues are regard to the restriction of the access permission to knowledge. Therefore, there is a need to construct a security model towards secure KMS, for managing access restriction in order to avoid unauthorized access as well as to protect knowledge throughout Knowledge Management (KM) activities. This research found that Access Control Model (ACM) is competent to overcome these issues, thus, this paper is to study the characteristics of this security model which considering the criteria of collaborative system as the KMS will be developed in collaborative environment. The study entailed online questionnaire survey and was responed by multi level groups of Community of Practice (CoP). Generally, the result of this study shows that the Quality Dimension which consists of fourteen (14) criteria has been agreed from most of the respondents. These criteria will be applied during the development of the system prototype of secure collaborative KMS.
