I'm looking for the proper word to describe restrictions that "add" up in computer talk.
Let's say that someone can set the authorization to get into a system as:
- password: User must provide correct password
- origin: Request must come from a specific domain/host
If the admin was to set both - a password and a restriction on origin - how would you describe that to user? Something like "password and origin restrictions are cumulative"- but thats not quite right. Is there a better term?
This is for some technical docs I am writing to let the developer know that if they set both methods they will be compounded and are not independent of each other. There can certainly be one (or even none) of the methods selected but it's the option of selecting both that leaves my docs a little confusing.
