Securing SharePoint

I found a really good article on SharePoint Security. It summarizes the concepts quite well.

Find the real article at:

Here is an even more brief summary:

One thing to remember about SharePoint is that it is built on Asp.Net which is built on IIS.Realizing this you will realize that SharePoint 2007 "inherits" a lot authentication providers from Windows and IIS

Internet Information Server:

  • Basic
  • Digest
  • Certficates
  • NTLM
  • Kerberos

ASP.NET adds

  • LDAP
  • SQL Server
  • Active Directory
  • as well as quite a bit of extensibility.

I found an example of using a sharepoint list as an authentication provider at:

Forms-based authentication

HOWTO: Configuring a Office SharePoint Server 2007 Publishing Site with Dual Authentication Providers and Anonymous Access
