In this chapter, you learn about securing your applications. Because a complete application will often include both a web app component and a client database component, our discussion covers both environments. We start with a review of the different architectures involved. You then investigate the design elements required for a successful security implementation. You learn what features are available to you out of the box and what you need to do to augment those out-of-the-box features.
You learn about managing SharePoint accounts, which are needed to access, read, modify data, and design the web app hosted on the site. Once you master the essential operations to manage users, we turn to embedding security in your web app and discuss strategies for enforcing it effectively.
