Quick Fly-by of Access Control Mechanisms (Models)

Reviewing NIST Special Publication 800-162, Guide to Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) Definition and Considerations, and created a quick illustration to show the differences between Mandatory Access Controls (MAC), Discretionary Access Controls (DAC), and Attribute-based Access Controls (ABAC). This is what I will use in class this week to help others navigate the differences. Enjoy!
