access control list

EnglishEdit

NounEdit

access control list (plural access control lists)

  1. (computing) A security scheme for file level security (as opposed to traditional user, group levels, or the somewhat stricter role levels.) Abbreviated ACL.
    The hackers broke through the B security model, so no more role level security; all critical data must use access control lists from now on.
