Authorization is the process of determining the rights of an authenticated user for accessing the application's resources. The Asp.Net MVC Framework has a AuthorizeAttribute filter for filtering the authorized user to access a resource. Refer this article for Custom Authentication and Authorization in ASP.NET MVC

Authorize Attribute Properties
Properties
Description
Roles
Gets or sets the roles required to access the controller or action method.
Users
Gets or sets the user names required to access the controller or action method.

Filtering Users by Users Property

Suppose you want to allow the access of AdminProfile to only shailendra and mohan users then you can specify the authorize users list to Users property as shown below.

[Authorize(Users = "shailendra,mohan")]
public ActionResult AdminProfile()
{
 return View();
}

Filtering Users by Roles Property

Suppose you want to allow the access of AdminProfile action to only Admin and SubAdmin roles then you can specify the authorize roles list to Users property as shown below.

[Authorize(Roles = "Admin,SubAdmin")]
public ActionResult AdminProfile()
{
 return View();
}
