Role-based access controls (RBAC) regulate access to computer or network resources based on assigned user roles. Each "user role" defines a set of permissions that allow individual users to perform specific tasks, such as view, create, or modify a file.
The components of RBAC such as role-permissions, user-role and role-role relationships make it simple to perform user assignments. Roles are defined according to job skills, authority, and responsibility.
