Attribute Based Access Control
Attribute based access control (ABAC) is a logical access control method based on attributes associated with the applicant, information, transaction and context of the request. Rules are created using these attributes that establish the access policy for the organisation.
Examples of these attributes are: name and role, address information or corporate information, read and write rights and the geographical location or time.
An advantage of ABAC is the real-time access to all information within the organisation for all types of requests. This is also accomplished without the need to configure a large-scale administration model.
ABAC provides the indispensable resources to enable security to be accomplished via Who, What, Where, Why and With what.
ABAC for your organisation?
Traxion considers ABAC to be a continuation of Role Based Access Control (RBAC). If you want to know more about Attribute-Based Access Control, the pros and cons or its implementation, feel free to contact us.
