Attribute-Based Access Control

[…] is an authorization model that evaluates attributes (or characteristics), rather than roles, to determine access. The purpose of ABAC is to protect objects such as data, network devices, and IT resources from unauthorized users and actions—those that don’t have “approved” characteristics as defined by an organization’s security policies.
