Is it possible to define who can start a process? Swimlanes?

I'm new to BPMN, & my current assumption of BPMN is that only certain users should be able to start certain processes, i.e. define which groups can start which processes; and also have a way - at runtime - to query processes by users or groups (, just as we can do with "user tasks").

Does this capability exist in BPMN2 or does activiti support this? If not, what is the standard way to limit the startup of certain processes to certain users?

Maybe the use of "swimlanes" is the solution? (and does activiti support swimlanes?)
