Rule Of Least Privilege
  • The principle that requires that each subject be granted the most restrictive set of privileges needed for the performance of authorized tasks. The application of this principle limits the damage that can result from accident, error, or unauthorized use. (Source NCSC TG 004);
  • A program or process running in a computer should have the fewest capabilities (privileges) needed to execute.
