Levels of Security


Overview

Most Web applications require certain aspects of the system to be secured in some manner. Security requirements are often specified at both the system and functional levels. System requirements may dictate, for example, that entry of sensitive information should be performed over a secure HTTP connection (HTTPS). On a higher level, functional requirements may dictate that only users with administrative privileges can access certain pages and menu items. From a developer's perspective, the critical task is to identify which of the requirements can be satisfied using standard security mechanisms, and which requirements require a customized security solution. Quite often, security requirements dictate some sort of customization. In some cases, you can use a combination of standard security mechanisms and customization to achieve the desired security policy.
