There are many variables to consider when you are securing a CMS site. Security in CMS spans multiple layers, from the operating system to the CMS Web application. Depending on whether your site is internal or external and whether the site has general-access parts, the site security configuration will be different.
In this chapter, we looked into security settings in several common scenarios for intranet sites, Internet sites, and extranet sites. Depending on your business needs and your company security policy, your requirements may be different from the examples we looked into. However, you can use our scenarios as a starting point for your specific implementation.
In the next two chapters, we will look into how to deploy CMS sites from development to production.
