Permissions are typically associated to roles, and roles are asigned 
either to user groups of to users directly. 

However the policies are typically more complicated ...
We can think of having and administrator of the system, a moderator, 
an owner (i.e. creator) of the annotation, even an software agent 
(i.e. generator) or a unidentified user (i.e. annonymous). All of 
these roles make sense in an (moderated) annotation system.

This .. is about authorization ... the authentication is easier.
However, for both I'll suggest consulting the oauth standard
