Rights management

Are there preexisting freeware libraries available to control rights?

I need to represent users, roles, membership, rights (access, go to potty, read a book, eat a cookie, read a file, write a file, completely arbitrary, open to utilizing application to decide), and target objects and object groups.

I need to be able to set binary grant/revoke rights or degrees of rights depending on an arbitrary scale (1 to 10 or 5 to 100, etc).

I have written such a thing for ASP and it's not exactly done by a Computer Scientist so I thought I'd so myself a favor and use someone's code for the ASP.NET 1.0/1.1/2.0 implementation.

Any suggestions?

Not sure of how good a fit it is, but it's a start... you should check out the Authorization & Profile Application Block:
