Overview

Caché security provides a very flexible application security model. The use of an application can be restricted to a particular set of users, or open to all users. For users authorized to use an application, the security model supports a flexible role escalation model:

  • The application can execute with only the user's permissions.

  • The application can add permissions for some users (using target and matching roles, covered later in the tutorial).

  • The application can add permissions for all users (using application roles, covered later in the tutorial).

  • The application can add some permissions for all users while adding other permissions for only some users (using a combination of application roles with target and matching roles).
