comment Criteria for Evaluating Static Analysis Tools
I disagree, I point to this question often as an example of what "a good shopping question" would look like. IE I need to buy "some class of product", what are the criteria I need to know about to consider which is best for me?

comment What is the difference between RBAC and DAC/ACL?
I think it is mostly a question of nomenclature, but often "permissions" is used on a specific data object, whereas privileges is more system-wide. But this might be my own subjective view.

comment What is the difference between RBAC and DAC/ACL?
Well you'd assign users to roles (put them in groups), and then grant permissions to the roles. Strictly speaking a role doesn't group tasks either - there are other models for that, though often systems will implement this kind of "expanded RBAC", and I am all in favor of that (whatever you call it, but clarity is important as well).

@rfportilla groups is one common implementation of roles, especially when using a user directory platform (eg ActiveDirectory). And these can be nested, so adding a group to a role (or a group to a group) works as well.
