Access Control

This chapter presents an overview of the fundamental concepts that guide access control, covering authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) across our services.


Authentication, or "AuthN," is the process of proving identity with sufficient confidence and establishing a secure connection between the end-user and the service.


Authorization, or "AuthZ," is the process of granting access to resources based on various constraints, including actions, permissions, policies, and other attributes.


Accounting, or "Auditing," refers to the process of monitoring events and logging records of who accessed what resources, when, and the actions taken within an audit trail.
