In IT security, permissions are the consent a user or group of users are given to perform a specific action. In WordPress and user roles, the word Capabilities is used instead of permissions, though they have the same meaning. For example a user with an Author role has the capabilities (or permissions) to create and publish own content. Read the article Use user roles to improve the security of your WordPress.
