[a]ccess control based on attributes associated with and about subjects, objects, targets, initiators, resources, or the environment. An access control rule set defines the combination of attributes under which an access may take place.[1]

An Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) model recognizes that a flexible access control policy should address the evaluation of multiple dimensions of an entity, including identifiers, roles, and qualifications.[2]
