Fine-Grained Access Control for Geo Services
security.manager allows the assignment of individual access permissions to different user groups, thereby ensuring that everyone gets access only to what they are entitled to.

security.manager controls access to services, right down to feature and attribute level. While a service is published only once, security.manager can enable different views for different users, by limiting access according to a user‘s rights. In doing this, security.manager provides a consistent user experience together with a holistic security approach.
This means, users will not get any information about the existence of content they are not entitled to, and permissions need to be explicitly expressed in the system. Everything that is not allowed by a policy is automatically forbidden, to ensure that access cannot be granted by accident.
