OWASP PHPRBAC Project
PHP-RBAC is the de-facto authorization library for PHP. It provides developers with NIST Level 2 Standard Role Based Access Control and more, in the fastest implementation yet.
Welcome to PHP-RBAC OWASP page. PHP-RBAC is an attempt to make computer software more secure by making role based access control practice much easier and safer. You can visit the official website of PHP-RBAC where tutorials and documentations are available at http://phprbac.net
PHP-RBAC is a standard NIST Level 2 Hierarchical Role Based Access Control library implemented as a library for PHP. It allows perfectly maintainable function-level access control for enterprise and small applications or even frameworks.
Since implementation of NIST Level 2 Hierarchical RBAC is quite complicated, there are very few similar libraries and most of them do not adhere to standards. PHP-RBAC is one of the fastest implementations (relying on a SQLite or MySQL backend) and has been tested in industry for more than three years.
