The NuBric behaviour control framework (BCF) is a
near-real-time framework written entirely in Java based on
the paradigms of both role based access control (RBAC)
and policy based access control (PBAC) which has been
designed to be open and extensible by third-party-modules.
Its purpose is to protect resources of any kind by session-
specific access restriction and behaviour control.
In short a user or process has to preliminarily connect to
the framework and the framework decides whether the user
or process is permitted to access the protected resource or
not. If the permission is granted the user or process is able
to directly access the resource but will be controlled and
regulated during the access, so NuBric acts as behaviour
control between user or process (session) and resource.
NuBric by design does not protect access to objects
in memory nor is it deployable within another applica-
tion framework. It constitutes a standalone near-real-
time framework to restrict access to external, framework-
independent resources by controlling and triggering exter-
nal, framework-independent facilities.
