I enjoyed this explanation of Access Control Lists using the characters from the Fellowship of the Ring http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/core-libraries/components/access-control-lists.html. I’ve had to explain ACLs to a couple of colleagues and this is a beautifully clear explanation. Then again, maybe I should run it by some of my non-coder colleagues to see if they understand it.
