The invention enables a service provider (46) to authorise a service to access a resource or function provided by a service provider based on a resource owner's consent, wherein the consent takes into account both to the identity of the service requesting the access and the identity of the user (42) of the requesting service (49). The invention separates the service access process into a first step in which the requesting service is granted access on the condition that the access is made in the name of a defined user, and a second step in which the user of the requesting service authorises the requesting service to access the resource in the requesting user' s name.
