Chapter 32. Database Security Made Easy > Looking At Special Issues

Looking At Special Issues

Although the discussion of security so far has been quite thorough, a couple of issues surrounding the basics of security have not yet been covered. They include additional issues with passwords, understanding how security works with linked tables, understanding and working with object ownership, and printing security information. These topics are covered in this section.

Passwords

When you create a user, no password is assigned to that user. Passwords can be assigned to a user only when that user has logged onto the system. The system administrator cannot add or modify a user's password. It is important to encourage users to assign themselves a password the first time they log onto the system. By using VBA code, the users can be forced to assign themselves a password. This is covered in Chapter 33.
