Authorization is the process that controls the access rights of principals (that is, persons, processes, and machines) to system resources in order to maintain integrity, confidentiality or availability constraints. Java introduces it as Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS), first as a platform extension with JDK version 1.3 and then as part of the core JDK version 1.4 and above. Java Authentication and Authorization Service process mainly focuses on the question "What access rights does the authenticated user running this code have?"
