Discretionary controls

Access controls that are not based on the policy are characterized as discretionary controls by the U.S. government and as need-to-know controls by other organizations. The latter term connotes least privilege - those who may read an item of data are precisely those whose tasks entail the need. Mandatory controls are based on policy. Secret controls and corrective controls are not related to access control.
