  Access control list - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ACLs cannot implement all of the security measures that one might wish to have on all systems, and a fine-grained capability-based operating system may be a better approach, with the authority transferred from the objects being accessed to the objects seeking access — allowing for much finer-grained control.
ACL is an abstract way to model and thus discuss the protection of resources in general.
Access lists are used to control both inbound and outbound traffic, and in this context they are similar to firewalls.

The ACL is a concept, it is implemented differently by various operating system, although there is a POSIX standard.
ACLs have been proven to be insecure under certain conditions and capability[?] is considered a better control, with the authority transferred from the objects being accessed to the objects seeking access - allowing for much finer-grained control.

Flow-based ACLs are useful when a very large number of unique ACLs are defined and these ACLs exceed the Content Addressable Memory (CAM) memory of a given module, but a subset of the defined ACLs will be used at any given time on a module.
However, once you configure an ACL and apply it to a port, the default action for that port is to deny all traffic that is not explicitly permitted on the port.
The number of CAM entries listed for the ACL itself is the total of the CAM entries used by the ACL's entries.

Version 1.2.9 of ProFTPD introduced a vulnerability that causes CIDR-based Access Control Lists (ACLs) to be treated as "AllowAll", thereby allowing remote users full access to files available to the FTP daemon.
The CIDR ACLs are disregarded, with the net effect being similar to an "AllowAll" directive.
This vulnerability may allow unauthorized files, including critical system files to be downloaded and/or modified, thereby allowing a potential remote compromise of the server.
