Implementing a Security Extension

Microsoft Windows Authentication is the primary system for securing reports in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (SSRS). In certain cases, however, you may need to extend the Reporting Services security system to accommodate custom security in your enterprise. You can do this using the development platform provided by the Reporting Services API. This section presents an overview of security extensions in Reporting Services.

For more information about implementing, deploying, and removing a Reporting Services security extension, see SQL Server Reporting Services Product Samples.
