Object Access Control List (ACL)

Simple per object access permissions managed by HCP.  Lets HCP arbitrate user and group access to HCP objects.


Aligned with other “Cloud” ACLs: Amazon S3, Google.



  • Safe Private and Public Cloud storage platform
  • Enable safe sharing between disparate individuals and groups
  • Support light-weight “Cloud”-style applications
  • Securely bring legacy application data to your Cloud



  • Simple, “Cloud”-compatible, RWD ACLs on each HCP object for users and groups
  • Object authorization managed by HCP, unburdening the application
  • Compatible with Active Directory for User and Group lookup
  • Amazon S3-style built-in groups: “Public” and “Authenticated”
  • Define default object ACL and overrides at Tenant and Namespace level


Can ACLs be used to grant temporary anonymous access to a single object?

Yes!  Object ACL Example
