Role based access control is a strong and powerful cyber security system. It is an important technology for advanced access controls.
RBAC security systems allow access to the users to provide the information that is essential to efficiently perform their job duties. As a result, this cyber security system doesn’t give access to the lower level employees who don’t need to access their sensitive data if they do not need it to fulfill their responsibilities.
It is especially useful for the business if you have a large workforce and make use of the contractors and other third-party users that make it more challenging to carefully monitoring, track their network access. RBAC will assist in protecting sensitive data and critical applications from your businesses.
There are different type of role based access control system that is useful for a big organizations such as:-
1. Discretionary Access Control (DAC): This type of access control system grants users access level privileges based on specified rules associated with their individual roles.
2. Mandatory Access Control (MAC): This is a type of role-based access control system that assigns different clearance levels to users depending on their roles.
3. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): This type of access control system is based on roles defined within the system. Users’ access privileges adhere to the roles they are assigned. This system simplifies user management as access rights automatically change when roles are added or removed.
4. Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC): This type of access control system is based on other attributes related to a user such as age, location or position. This system uses policy decisions to allow or deny access depending on the user’s attributes.
