An object-oriented framework provides ease of development and alteration of access control systems for arbitrary applications and accomodates arbitrary security policies while providing fine-grained security by providing for creation of labels for portions of a resource such as an application or portions of files, credentials corresponding to users and any other objects of the access control system by providing templates for such objects within at least one policy manager class of objects and which can be selected or modified at will. Provision for creation of label and credential objects which are later compared or correlated for granting or denying access to portions of a resource effectively decouples security policy from security enforcement and allows reconciliation of security policies having inconsistent requirements as well as development of hybrid and customized security policies.
