  • Right, I just was unsure because I thought Rule Based Access Controls were different and I wasn't sure if they both count as based on the same thing?

  • I have gone through the question again and realized that since we have 4 access control models, the rule based is likely not to apply to mandatory access in this case.

  • The mandatory access is much likely to affect a group by applying a rule other than purely based on rules. This makes mandatory access a group based model.

  • A group based model works in that only an approved group of individuals can access a given set of information or data while a group that does not have clearance cannot do this. It appears as a rule but it is much of a group policy.
