JCR 2.0 API defines some access control related interfaces, notably

- AccessControlManager: used to manipulate access control policies
- AccessControlPolicy and a derived interface AccessControlList
- AccessControlEntry
- Privilege

the specification can provide you with some basic information
about how to use the api.

in addition there are a couple of extensions in the jackrabbit-api
such as the ability to create ACEs that deny privileges.
furthermore jackrabbit-api also defines a PrincipalManager that
allows you to retrieve the principals you want to create ACEs for.
this part has been omitted from the jsr 283 specification.

hope that helps
