Using Role-Based Access Control (Tasks)

This chapter covers tasks for distributing the capabilities of superuser by using discrete roles. The mechanisms that roles can use include rights profiles, authorizations, and privileges. The following is a list of the task maps in this chapter.

For an overview of RBAC, see Role-Based Access Control (Overview). For reference information, see Chapter 10, Role-Based Access Control (Reference). To use privileges with RBAC or without RBAC, see Chapter 11, Privileges (Tasks).
