An ACL stores informations about application users, their roles and the roles permissions.

the permissions of the application users;
example: has a given user got the permission to execute a certain action ?
the roles of the application users;

mandatory to view the customers data stored into the application database ?
the permissions of a certain role;
example: can users with
role delete the incoming customer orders ?
