How Security Works with ColdFusion

Every ColdFusion developer needs or will eventually have a need for a security framework in an application. Whether it is for a simple administration page that needs to be secured or a complex secured content site, most of us have built a security system using ColdFusion. Using persistent Client or Session variables, cookies, or URL parameters, building integrated security in ColdFusion has been relatively easy, but granular control over elements of application pages remains a difficult and time-consuming endeavor.

Internet service providers and Internet presence providers need to secure specific elements of the ColdFusion Application Server (CFAS) to provide a stable and secure Web hosting environment. Granular control over each tag and data source is key to maintaining a high service level. ColdFusion 4 Security Services addresses all these issues, providing granular control over tags, data sources, and other system and user-defined resources in a highly intuitive manner. Optional integration with NetTegrity's SiteMinder product provides extensive and robust security options for your Web applications.
