  abstract     = {At the European Spallation Source, PV Access has been selected as the default EPICS protocol. However, PV Access in the initial releases of EPICS 7 does not implement any access control of client requests. In order to be able to protect selected process variables (PVs) from write requests that may cause harm to the system, some type of access control is needed. This paper details how PV Access is extended to partially reuse the access control available in Channel Access, while at the same time providing additional features. It also explains how ESS intends to deploy and manage access control in terms of infrastructure, tools and responsibilities. Limitations of the access control mechanism are also discussed.},
