AuthorizationStoreRoleProvider maps the functionality of the Role Manager feature onto the Authorization Manager (AzMan) authorization store that was first released as part of Windows Server 2003 and now is also part of Windows Server 2008 with several new enhancements. The provider supports most of the RoleProvider functionality as well as a handful of AzMan specific settings and behaviors. Although AzMan itself has the concept of more granular permission checks than just role checks, AuthorizationStoreRoleProvider only exposes the role-based functionality of AzMan.
