Plan site and content security (Windows SharePoint Services)

Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0


Topic Last Modified: 2010-09-13

There are several elements that make up security for your environment. One of these elements is the permissions that control access to your sites and the content in your sites. A new security model and new security features (such as SharePoint® groups to control membership, and item- and document-level permissions) make it easy to control who has access to what content in your sites. This chapter explains how security for sites and site content works, and it guides you through making choices about site security.

Another element integral to the security of your environment is how you structure security at the Web application level — choosing authentication methods and specifying the encryption methods to use. For more information, see Plan for and design security (Windows SharePoint Services).
