Chapter 22. Using Peer Web Services > Maintaining Security

Maintaining Security

By using Peer Web Services, you are allowing remote users to connect to your computer. Because you probably don't want to give them complete access to all of your files and programs, you need to implement at least some of the available security features.

Security Overview

Peer Web Services relies on the Windows NT security model. Windows NT implements security features that help you protect your computer and its resources. Components of Windows NT that provide this security are User Accounts and the NTFS file system. You can control access to computer resources by requiring assigned user accounts and passwords. You can then limit the rights of the users'accounts. NTFS enables you to set permissions to both folders and files located on your computer. You can control access to folders and files in a variety of ways. For example, you can prevent users from copying files to or from a folder, or you can prevent users from executing files in certain folders.
