83 mins - In this advanced session, we will learn how to leverage the Authorization Manager API that’s built into Windows Server 2003 to control access to resources and limit the tasks that a user can perform. We’ll write code to perform dynamic access checks on specific tasks. We’ll compare and contrast controlling authorization via a custom-built SQL scheme and using the Active Directory and Authorization Manager in Windows Server 2003. Finally, we’ll explore how roles can be inherited and integrate auditing.
