What is a role in Role Based Access Control (RBAC)?
An RBAC role is a selection of permissions that determine the access a user is granted based on their duties in an organization. In its simplest form, it can be connected to a role, a department a region, etc. Role based access enables role subsets to be created when, for instance, different people within the same employer roles need to access different information.
Key considerations for implementing RBAC
If you are thinking of implementing Role Based Access Control and don’t require a dynamic approach, RBAC is ideal as long as you remain aware that, as authorization complexities grow, you may need to evolve from RBAC to ABAC.
