Security Inheritance

Hi All

Is there a concept of applying a "Security Policy" on document(s) in Alfresco? I have a requirement of defining a security policy (Access Control List) that will have individual rules (Access Control Entries) as to which user / group has what kind of access (Consumer / Editor / collaborator etc). And then apply this policy to a document where the document will inherit security from it.  This way if the security policy is modified, the authorization rules are automatically  passed on to documents that use this security policy. Does Alfresco support this kind of mechanism?

I am thinking of using an aspect to define this and apply it to a document. But I could not make a lot of headway as I could not figure out how a document can inherit security from an aspect.

Any pointers in this regard will be of great help.
