A temporary credential token (52) is generated correlative to the assigned role of the user by the security administrator (62) as the user logs on by entering the assigned unique user identifier and indicates a desire to access a resource (56). The temporary credential token (52) is communicated to the resource (56) and any subsequent resources (56) to allow access by the user (90), and deleted as the user (90) terminates the session.
