Chapter 27. 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, you do not assign a password to the user. You can assign passwords to a user only when that user has logged on to the system. The System Administrator cannot add or modify a user's password (the exception to this is when using the Security Wizard). It is important to encourage users to assign themselves a password the first time they log on to the system. Using VBA code, the users can be forced to assign themselves a password. This is covered in Chapter 28. Alternatively, the administrator of the database can log on as each user, assigning each a password.
