In this chapter

Creating a Security Sandbox

Remote Development Security

The power of ColdFusion Markup Language and ColdFusion Studio can be a double-edged sword. While developers can create sophisticated Web applications and access required resources remotely, administrators must be able to balance this access with the needs of other users on a system as well as the needs of the system itself. It is not a good idea to allow users full control over the file system and registry of a server. Bad things will happen. By creating Security Sandboxes for developers and matching Remote Development Security (RDS) to these sandboxes, administrators can rest easy knowing critical system resources and other users applications are safe.

Chapter 5, "Security Options," discusses the concept of Security Sandboxes and RDS. In this chapter you restrict access to critical resources on your ColdFusion Application Server and establish access restrictions for remote developers using ColdFusion Studio. Data source access, file system access, Registry access, and Administration Security using the supplied resource types are all covered. At the end of this unit, your system will have a good level of security in place, and you'll be able to enhance your security as needed.
