Consent Mechanism


Consent Mechanism is a methodology or implementation of obtaining consent or authorization or delegation to perform an Resource Action.

Often a Consent Mechanism is desired or even required for legal, compliance or privacy reasons.

There maybe some narrow legal definitions that delineate differences between consent and authorization but in general, they are the same.

Generally any protocol which supports Law of User Control and Consent would require a Consent Mechanism.
