DEFINITION

Access Control List

An Access Control List is a set of rules or configurations that defines what actions are permitted or denied for a given user, group, or network entity within a network or system. ACLs are commonly used in network devices, such as routers and firewalls, to control traffic flow based on criteria such as source or destination IP address, port numbers, and protocols. By configuring ACLs, administrators can enforce security policies and restrict access to network resources based on specific conditions.
