The management and administration of roles to set permission for access control have become challenging enterprises of all sizes. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn why Role-Based Access Control is becoming unmanageable (called “role explosion”), and why this legacy access control mechanism must evolve. Enter attribute-based access control – ABAC.

ABAC builds upon existing roles, and expands the range of attributes used in the authorization process, while utilizing a context-rich policy language that easily caters to both simple and complex use cases. You can easily transition from RBAC to ABAC.

Roles are still, and will always be, an integral part of a successful access control strategy. But in order to scale for the future, we need to extend those roles using attributes and
policies by means of Attribute-Based Access Control.
