What Is RBAC (Role-Based Access Control)?

May 23, 2023

RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) is a security model created to control user access to system resources based on the roles of a specific user in an organization. In this model, system administrators assign roles with specific permissions set to each user. Therefore, RBAC allows admins to control who has access to system resources by managing roles instead of dealing with individual users.

With Role-Based Access Control, organizations save time and improve security. RBAC is widely used in various industries with strict security measures, such as finance or healthcare.
