Attribute Based Access Control (or ABAC) allows agencies to perform run-time access control based on digital policies derived from organizational, enterprise, or business policies. This dynamic authorization model can define, for example, a mission-critical policy about a user’s access rights to a data record, taking into consideration the user’s identity, role within a government organization, credentials, and when he/she should be granted access.
With guidelines from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), ABAC has quickly become the standard access control model for the Federal Government, ensuring sensitive data remains secure across innumerable applications and databases. solving many of the data leakage challenges that are present today.
