Security SharePoint boundaries – Securable objects Best Practices


Hi,


I have found this question to be trickier  than expected, so I wanted to put together my favorites links.


Let’s start with oficial published information:



Other scenarios as security trimming (search related) are not been considered.


Although those articles seem a good starting point, there may be ambiguous general guidance when a customer tries to implement it. Overall I will simplify with: use Active Directory Groups, take into account boundaries, do not target max limits and understand manageability vs business requirements.


These articles from Joel Oleson and Eli Robillard are great summaries .


 Finally, it is very important to be able to manage this security configuration efficiently, and here the main recommendation is to complement SharePoint with third parties or published tools as:



  1. DeliverPoint

  2. Universal SharePoint Manager

  3. Security Explorer

  4. Site Administrator for SharePoint

  5. SharePoint Administration Toolkit (Office SharePoint Server) [Permissions Reporting Tool]

  6. User Clustering WebPart

  7. Others community tools:


    1. http://www.sharepointsecurity.com/ [Simple Secure WebPart]

    2. SharePoint Access Checker WebPart

    3. Site Security Management Utility

Bye!
