Understanding 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 a user level. You can assign rights to objects, and those rights can be assigned to either individual users or a group of users. Figure 1.2 shows the User and Group Permissions dialog box. As you can see, rights can be assigned for each object. For a table, you can assign the user or group rights to read, insert, update, and delete data, as well as to read, modify, or administer the table's design. You can assign different groups of users different rights to an object. For example, you can assign one group rights to add, edit, and delete data. You can assign another group rights to edit only and another group rights to view only, and you can deny another the right to even view the data.

Figure 1.2. The User and Group Permissions dialog box lets you assign user and group rights to each database object.
