Access Control: What Is It and How Does It Work?
Access control systems can help any business restrict the flow of traffic into and out of its premises. Here are some of the places where access control is used:
- University campuses
- Data centers
- Company buildings
Access control systems can use single or multi-factor authentication methods. These require the user to generate their PIN, password, tokens, biometric scans, etc., to gain access to the site.
Types of Access Control Models
Role-Based Access Control
The role-based model allows access to users based on their role within the organization. This is useful for organizations where employees from different departments and levels may access the same information.
Mandatory Access Control
In a mandatory access control model, access is restricted or granted based on the document content and the users’ clearance.
Attribute-Based Access Control
In this model, access is granted or restricted to users based on certain attributes. These include:
- IP address
- Data accessed
- Time of the day
- Device type
- Employee status
Discretionary Access Control
The DAC model is implemented using access control lists. These lists define whether the user has access to files and what changes they can make to the file.
No matter what kind of infrastructure or organization structure you have, you have an access control model. With Empire Technologies, you don’t have to do the math on these models. We do the hard work for you!
