Object Capabilities (ObCap)

Published by Infominer on

The capability paradigm is about access control. When a system, such as an OS or a website, is presented with a request for a service it provides, it needs to decide if it should actually do what the requestor is asking for.


The object-capability model was first proposed by Jack Dennis and Earl C. Van Horn in the 1966 paper.
