Least privilege is the concept and practice of restricting access rights for users, accounts, and computing processes to only those resources absolutely required to perform routine, day to day tasks. Privilege is when authorisation is granted to bypass certain security restraints. When applied to people, least privilege access, sometimes called the Principle of Least Privilege (POLP), means enforcing the minimal level of user rights, or lowest clearance level, that allows the user to perform his/her role.
