Free registration required

Executive Summary

Controlling access to a large distributed service is a potentially error prone process that may negatively impact request throughput and usability. The Authorization-Based Access Control (or ABAC) URL rewriter solves this problem by providing locally verifiable authorizations and delegation tracking compatible with common web tools. The access control mechanism is reusable, distributed and meets the scaling requirements of large distributed services. Controlling user access is critical to the successful operation and widespread adoption of large-scale distributed web services.
