NAME ^

Apache2::SiteControl::GrantAllRule - A rule that grants permission to do everything.

SYNOPSIS ^

In your instance of a ManagerFactory:

   use Apache2::SiteControl::GrantAllRule;
   ...

   sub getPermissionManager
   {
      ...

      $manager->addRule(new Apache2::SiteControl::GrantAllRule);

      ...

      return $manager;
   }

DESCRIPTION ^

Apache2::SiteControl::GrantAllRule is a pre-built rule that grants access for all permission requests. This rule can be used to help implement a system that has a default policy of allowing access, and to which you add rules that deny access for specific cases.

Note that the loose type checking of Perl makes this inherently dangerous, since a typo is likely to fail to deny access. It is recommended that you take the opposite approach with your rules, since a typo will err on the side of denying access. The former is a security hole, the latter is a bug that people will complain about (so you can fix it).
