Access Control List is a table of protocols that contains file of permissions attached to an object. Access Control List determines the users or system processes are allowed to access the objects and the level of permissions that they have to perform actions on them.
Every entry in an Access Control List denotes a subject and an operation that can be performed. Taking an example, suppose you have an Access Control List file with the command ‘Jerry, delete’. Here ‘Jerry’ is the subject and ‘delete’ is operation, which means the user Jerry has ’delete’ permissions on the selected file. Access Control List is one of the best techniques to control traffic over the network.
