Zend Framework: Zend_Acl Component Proposal

Proposed Component Name Zend_Acl

Proposers Aleksey V. Zapparov
Revision 0.1 - 22 April 2008: Initial release (explanation of idea). (wiki revision: 4)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Improvement of Zend_Acl, so it will become multi-model (not limited to RBAC model as right now).

2. References

3. Component Requirements, Constraints, and Acceptance Criteria

Not defined yet.

4. Dependencies on Other Framework Components

No dependecies.

5. Theory of Operation

I propose not to limit ACL to the only RBAC model. There are a lot of models. And all of them are just a bases, so in certain project developer creating a new model based on ideas of well-known models.
I agree that RBAC is very good model and t can be used almost in all cases, but don't forget about almost. So for example right now a I need an ACL model based on ideas of bit field. Of course it can be done with RBAC, but with additional classes and functions.

6. Milestones / Tasks

7. Class Index

  • Zend_Acl

8. Use Cases

    <p>Hi Aleksey,</p>

    <p>right now, it seems to be a bit hard to grasp what exactly you mean by different "models". It could certainly help if you could add some Wikipedia links (for example) for RBAC and LBAC.</p>

    <p>Best regards<br />

    <p>The name of this proposal should reflect what it's about: "Zend_Acl Improvements"</p>

    <p>The ACL would also need a hierarchie.</p>

    <p>Often a user has rights for one department and for another not (or groups...)</p>
