  Access control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Access control is the ability to permit or deny the use of an object (a passive entity, such as a system or file) by a subject (an active entity, such as an individual or process).
Access control techniques are generally categorized as either discretionary or mandatory.
In public policy, access control to restrict access to systems ("authorization") or to track or monitor behavior within systems ("accountability") is an implementation feature of using trusted systems for security or social control.

 Role Based Access Control
The controls are discretionary in the sense that a subject with a certain access permission is capable of passing that permission (perhaps indirectly) on to any other subject (unless restrained by mandatory access control).
Access control in the rules above does not require any checks on the user's right to access a data object, or on the transformation procedure's right to access a data item, since the data accesses are built into the transaction.
Requiring the system to control access of transaction programs to objects through the access function used in rule (4) might then be a useful form of redundancy, but it could involve significant overhead for a limited benefit in enforcing integrity requirements.

 ProCurve Networking by HP - Access Control Security Solution Technical Brief
Access is controlled at the LAN edge – intelligent switches deal with user authentication individually and rely on commands from a central server to set authorization levels before a user is granted access.
In the future, well constructed, intelligent networks will have access control systems that prevent 95 percent of attacks and drastically cut the risk from external or internal sources by providing a clear authorization process and audit trail that's commanded from a central server, yet controlled by switches at the edge for rapid authentication and authorization.
The ProCurve Access Control Security solution is the first comprehensive offering from ProCurve that addresses the authentication of end users to a LAN using 802.1X standard and RADIUS technology implemented on edge switches.

 Implementing Security Access Control (SAC)
Security access control is the act of ensuring that an authenticated user accesses only what they are authorized to and no more.
For example, although you may be asked to control access to specific columns of specific rows within a database based on complex business rules you may not be able to implement this in a cost effective manner that also conforms to performance constraints.
When a user attempts to interact with a database his or her permissions are checked, and if the user is not authorized to perform part of the interaction, which could be a transaction, the interaction fails and an error is returned.

File-system based ACLs cannot implement all of the security measures that an organization may require on all systems, and a fine-grained capability-based access control 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.
Access control lists can generally be configured to control both inbound and outbound traffic, and in this context they are similar to firewalls.

 Media Access Control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Media Access Control (MAC) data communication protocol sub-layer is the part of the seven-layer OSI model data link layer (layer 2).
It provides addressing and channel access control mechanisms that makes it possible for several terminals or network nodes to communicate within a multipoint network, typically a local area network (LAN) or metropolitan area network (MAN).
Media access control is often used as synonym to multiple access protocol, since the MAC sublayer provides the protocol and control mechanisms that are required for a certain channel access method.
