Thanks D.W - that finally clicked. I was just over-thinking things. =)

Thanks Scott. I'll need to think about that some more but it makes more sense now. =)

comment Is it correct to consider Task Based Access Control as a type of RBAC?
I was afraid you'd say that ;-) It makes since but I'm concerned that ambiguous areas like this will become troublesome during the exam since I won't have an essay field to explain why I chose the answer.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm not a programmer so perhaps that's where my confusion is coming from.

Hi John, thanks for the prompt response! I see your point and I guess it doesn't hurt for something to be more secure. As for why it shouldn't happen, I guess it just doesn't make sense to me for a subject to not be able to "read" the same place that they're "writing" to. How would they know if they're overwriting something? It also seems like it would dilute the purpose of the object. If I'm storing "confidential" information in an object that's really intended to keep "Top Secret" information, I'm reducing it's effectiveness. Perhaps I'm over-thinking this though.
