What is Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)?

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

Role-based access control (RBAC) is a method of access security, which is based on a person’s role within a business. Role-based access control is a way to provide security because it only allows employees to access the information they need to do their jobs while preventing them from accessing additional information that is not relevant to them.  A security role is a collection of permission which grants access to applications and with applications appropriate to their business mission and, generally, uses the principle of least privilege (PoLP).
