Full Title or Meme

Authorization of Access to a Resource is the primary end goal for nearly all Identity Management.


There are a variety of reasons to limit access to a resource on the web. The primary ones are:

  1. Embarrassment - there are some things we just don't want others to know about us.
  2. Financial - there are some things that we want to make a profit from releasing.



In general the wiki page on Authorization deals with Access Control in an Identity Management ecosystem.

In the following cases Access Control is addressed independently from Identity Management.

Also note that the use of Verifiable Credentials can be tied to a one-time or Pseudonym thus avoiding any Identity Management between the holder and the verifier.

Access Control Encryption

or ACE is a scheme for using attribute encryption to acquire access.[1]
