Application Development with PAS for OpenEdge : Design and Implementation Considerations : Security considerations

Security considerations

The general security framework for your networking system is governed by security elements associated with your Spring Security configuration to connect to each PAS for OpenEdge ABL Web application using its supported transports, your operating system, and your file system
As you read through this section, consider your security goals. For example, what type of database access do you want to make available for your user community? How much control do you want to exert over individual users' ability to run specific procedures? Do you have a business need to produce audit trail details? This type of appraisal will help you determine whether to implement a tight security model, with strict control over application data, or a loose security model, with fewer access controls. That is, although each security option is unique and independent of other options, the total effect of the options you choose to implement will tend toward a tighter or looser security model.
