HelpNetSecurity Feature: The 10 Misconceptions of Using a Policy-based Approach for Access Control

The principle of Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) has existed for many years. It’s the evolution from simple access control lists and role-based access control, to a highly flexible system for administering access based on the evaluation of attributes.

ABAC presents a centralized mechanism to create policies that hone and control who has access to what, and under what conditions. The policies are created once, and implemented across the application ecosystem.
