Role-Based Access Control Approaches In Mangodb 2.4 and Informix Online Dynamic Server Version 7.2
This paper compares and contrast role based access control (RBAC) approaches in mangodb 2.4 and Informix Online Dynamic Server Version 7.2. We categorize RBAC features under two major areas. User role assignment and assigning privileges. Many commercially successful access control systems for mainframes implement role for secondary administration for example, an operator role could access all resources but not change access permissions, a security officer role could access all resources but have no access e.t.c. my findings is that these products provide a sound basis for implementing the basic features of RBAC, although there are significant differences. In particular, Informix restricts users to a single active role at any time, while mangodb allow multiple roles to be activated simultaneously as per the user's selection.
