In JIRA, Access is based on issue permissions (Browse permission) in project permission scheme. It's not based on components. But there is a concept of using component lead to set the assignee. Basically in the project configuration you can map users to component names and if new issues having a specific component is created then the mapped users becomes the assignee.

And on the dashboard you can have a gadget powered by a filter "assignee = currentUser() " and thus all users will see the components(read issues) which belong to them.

Sorry for the delay, but thanks for the answer.
