Discretionary Access Control

Discretionary access control (DAC) comes in the category of an access control process, which is described as a way to put the restriction rules on an object determined by the owner (subject) or an owner group of that object, by agreeing on some access policy rules. The process of this access control is called as discretionary for the reason that through this process an owner (subject) or an owner group has rights, that they can reassign authenticated objects or details access of that object to any other user (subject).

Features

A variety of features are given in the following, which comprise:

  • An owner (subject) or a group possibly can reassign authenticated objects ownership to another user (subject).
  • An owner (subject) or an owner group has rights, that they can reassign authenticated objects or details access of that object to any other user (subject).
  • If the reassigned user takes a lot of numerous attempts, to access the authorized data but not get success into it, then DAC restrict the user by following the access policy guidelines, for further attempt to access.
  • Users, who are unauthorized, have no idea and details about the attributes of object, such as file size, file name and path of directory.
  • The access control of object is determined by the owner (subject) or an owner group of that object, by agreeing on some access policy rules in the duration of access control list (ACL) authorization and based on user credentials and/or group association.
