Abstract

See full text

Embodiments disclosed herein provide systems and methods for provisioning network access for a user in order to provide access control to one or more networks with regard to the user. More particularly, a user may be authenticated and, based on a user profile associated with the authenticated user, provisioning rules may be established for the user such that the user's network access to one or more networks may be controlled based upon the user profile associated with the user. In a network utilized by multiple users, the use of access control based on user profiles associated with the users may prevent any one user or users from accessing one or more networks to the exclusion or detriment of other users because each user may be limited to the network resources provisioned to that user based on the user profile associated with the user.
