Securely Modify Right

Securely modify rights enable user to deny, grant or revert to unspecified only the rights he has been already granted.

Example Scenario:

If user Ram has a View and Securely modify the rights users have to objects rights then Ram will not be able to allot himself more right and also he can only grant or deny only these two rights (View and Securely Modify Rights) to any to other users.
