For example, your iPhone is a data producer for the pictures you're taking.  But iPhone itself is not an owner of the pictures, you are.  In name-based access control (figure 3.1 that you're referring to), you would be represented by some software entity that will enforce a specific policy for data secrecy that you will define.
