Definition of Privilege Model

A Privilege Model consists of a set of Roles, role-to-resource mappings for each Role, a set of users and user-to-role mappings for each user.

Given a user's Resource assignments, the Privilege Model predicts which Resources (login IDs, group memberships, etc.) the user should have.
