Access Control and Authorization
One of the system administrator’s biggest problems, which can soon turn into a nightmare if it is not well handled, is controlling access of who gets in and what is taken out of the system and who uses what resources, when, and in what amounts. Access control is restricting this access to a system or system resources based on something other than the identity of the user. For example, we can allow or deny access to a system’s resources based on the name or address of the machine requesting a document.
