Base is a Cakephp Role Based Access Control System Plugin, There are two ways you can make sure of it. One way is to plug-in it into your Existing Cakephp project, another way is to start a Cakephp project from Base.
As a Cakephp plugin, Base is very powerful and easy to integrate it into your Cakephp project.
As a role based access control system, firstly you have to define modules, then create roles and assign access rights to modules for each role, then you need to create users and assign each user a role. finally you will have a fully working RBAC system.
Simply speaking, Base gives a ready-made RBAC system. According to Wikipedia,role-based access control (RBAC) is an approach to restricting system access to authorized users.
