The ACL module, short for Access Control Lists, is an API for other modules to create lists of users and give them access to nodes. It has no UI of its own and will not do anything by itself; install this module only if some other module tells you to.

We're aware of the following modules using ACL (let us know if you know of others):

ACL for Drupal 8

We need help for porting ACL to D8. 7.x-1.1 is released and the 8.x-1.x branch is ready to start work on ACL for D8.
