15.5.1. User Authorization Model

Red Hat Virtualization applies authorization controls based on the combination of the three components:

For an action to be successfully performed, the user must have the appropriate permission for the object being acted upon. Each type of action corresponds to a permission. There are many different permissions in the system, so for simplicity:
