Authorization 10

Centralized authorization routines are a good programming practice, but like other routines, developers need to understand how they work, how to use them and any limitations. Such routines can be tested independently of other code and not only provide assurance on the quality, but also make refactorization an easy task and eliminate code duplicates and bad interpretations.

Server side implementation and presentation layer representations of access control rules must match.

How to play?

Richard can bypass the centralized authorization controls since they are not being used comprehensively on all interactions
