The Importance of Securing Your Database

By now, you should understand the importance of securing your application. Setting up security is a complex but worthwhile process that can be done at either a group or user level. You can assign rights to objects, and those rights can be assigned to either individual users or a group of users. Figure 2.5 shows the User and Group Permissions dialog box. As you can see, rights can be assigned for each object. For a table, the user or group can be assigned rights to read, insert, update, and delete data as well as read, modify, or administer the table's design. Different groups of users can be assigned different rights to an object. For example, one group can be assigned rights to add, edit, and delete data. Another group can be assigned rights to edit only, another group to view only, and another can be denied the right to even view the data.

Figure 2.5. The User and Group Permissions dialog box lets you assign user and group rights to each database object.
