Authorization and Authentication
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 supports security for user access at the Web site, list, list or library folder, and item levels. Security management is role-based at all levels, providing coherent security management across the Windows SharePoint Services platform with a consistent role-based user interface and object model for assigning permissions on objects. As a result, list-level, folder-level, or item-level security implements the same user model as Web site-level security, making it easier to manage user and group rights throughout a Web site. Windows SharePoint Services also supports unique permissions on the folders and items contained within lists and document libraries.
