Access Controls


Access Controls

Welcome to the Access Control lesson of the Chapter on Authentication Services. In today’s lesson not only do we explore the different types of Access Control, but we also look explain the Access Control life cycle and what that process looks like both server and client site.

We’ll define for you what authentication is, how that differs from authorization and what an Access Control list is.  You’ll learn the difference between mandatory and discretionary access, what Rule vs. Role Based Access is, if the two ever work together, and why that is important.
