ZAC is a practical lightweight library for access control in JavaScript based on aspect orientation. Its access control architecture is stack based, similar to those of Java and C#. However, ZAC integrates other features for more expressive access control. First, access control policies can be enforced at the level of objects, which permits more fine-grained control over resource access. Second, policies in ZAC can base their decisions on scripts' execution history. This lets developers express policies that are impossible to define using other models, such as bounded-time execution.
