Roles become cards ?

I agree with Dave Kearns when he says

Good post today ("No User Context Decisions in your Enterprise?") from Pam Dingle ...
Situations #1 and #4 in Pam's post are theoretically resolved using a role based access control approach. This leads me to the following two questions:
  1. Does role equal context ?
  2. Do (virtual) cards become a convenient means for activating one's role ?
Answering my own questions, I would say "yes" for both situations.

Hi Robin - other Robin here (Robin Wilton)... Two things: first, I just spotted myself in your blogroll, and wanted to say thanks for including me!

Second, I think of role as being one factor which is part of context... That is, I would use the term 'context' to describe a much wider set of parameters, which might include things like "what device am I using", "what kind of connection/session do I have" and so on.

In my 'privacy scheme of things' (and I appreciate that there are many others), 'context' is the set of factors which, for example, helps me to decide what data I am prepared to disclose...

In that instance, it would include "who am I expected to disclose to?", "why", "for how long", "which data items", and so on...

Hope this helps...

Best wishes,

I mentioned earlier the importance of steam machines in cleaning curtains and furnishings; however, its uses in a steam cleaning company in Riyadh do not stop at that point, but you will find that steam is working on the cleaning of "boards, carpets, sofas, rugs, etc.", thanks to its modern technology that It removes stains and dirt from its roots with the property of breaking up and dissolving the stains you make and then becomes easy to get rid of them.
