A Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) system for PHP

Anyone, that has searched the web for anything related to PHP, sooner or later must have come across the web site of Tony Marston. It is very rich source of ideas and information, and it is worth visiting any time you have a moment to spear. One of the topics that web developers tackle often is the issue of providing accurate and flexible access to the web site users. One way to do this is by using RBAC or Role-Based Access Control system. This system is most ofter implemented with a database, but this is not a requirement. Recently I looked again at one of Tony Marston̢۪s articles about RBAC implementation for PHP and I thought, I share the link with you. I hope it will help or inspire somebody. Enjoy!
