The article discusses access control and how it enforces policies to prevent users from acting outside of their intended permissions. Failures in access control can lead to unauthorized information disclosure, modification or destruction of data, or performing a business function outside of the limits of the user. The authentication process is handled by including the /include/authenticate.php file on every page that needs to be available to authenticated users. ResourceSpace provides access control using a group membership mechanism where a user can belong to only one user group at a particular point in time. Each user group has permissions to different parts/functions of the system, such as edit/view fields and download resources. The low-level function used to verify if a user has a particular permission is checkperm($perm).
