Access Road is a universal simulator of access controls that is intended to improve design and auditing of IT security. It provides simulations of GNU/Linux (components and rights on the file system), MySQL Server (components and privileges), and a generic Role-Based-Access-Control application. It is designed for database, system, and application administrators, IT designers, and auditors. Reliability and the ability to explain the results are the main objectives. A 50 page tutorial is provided, and a powerful framework allows new simulations to be added.


This release added simulation of MySQL Server (components, privileges, privilege sorting at any level), simulation of numerous new concepts including information systems, aliases, typed privileges, virtual folders, and rights inheritance, an information system window, multi-threaded diagrams, and a powerful framework of ACS add-ons for new simulations.
