Authorization Roles Managed On RBAC (O-ARMOR)

Authorization Roles Managed On RBAC (O-ARMOR)

Reference: C125


Availability: Available to download

This Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) standard defines a set of authorizations consistent with the generally accepted tasks assigned to administrative users, granting them the privileges necessary to perform their administrative duties, within a common set of administrative roles to be predefined on UNIX® systems.


Although the exact authorizations and privileges will be unique to each implementation of the UNIX® system, the general spirit of the roles will hold true. This standard also specifies an optional API that can be used to check whether a user has been given a particular authorization through RBAC.
