Description: The Access Control Framework specifies a general framework for the provision of access control. The purpose of access control is to counter the threat of unauthorized operations involving a computer or communication system. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 10181-3 access control framework supports access control in both standalone and networked systems. This standard applies security services in an Open Systems environment, where the term `Open Systems` includes databases, distributed applications, Open Distributed Processing (ODP), and Open Systems Interconnection (OSI). While Access Control Framework addresses data elements, and sequences of operations that are used to obtain specific security services, it cannot be used on protocol elements.

This standard is member of the International Organization for Standardization / International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) Information Technology - Open Systems Interconnection - Security Frameworks For Open Systems.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
