In the face-to-face meeting there was a discussion about the following
During the discussion, it was stated that Authorization and Rights are
the same thing. I thought the terms had slightly different meaning;
more precisely different meaning depending on context; that is,
Authentication refers to "are you who you say you are". Applies to
users mostly but also applies to devices.
Authorization refers to "you are allowed to do and/or use this equipment
and these capabilities, etc. Applies to a user in reference to a
--- User A is authorized to print on printer A, in color,
Rights, more specifically, Digital Rights refers to "you are allowed to
do and/or use this content (document) and how. Applies to a user in
reference to a document.
--- User A has the rights to view this document only.
Are these broad distinctions basically correct; so that Authorization
should not be construed to be Rights.
