Security Basics

All Microsoft Provisioning System components use discretionary access control lists (DACLs) and access control entries (ACEs) to control the access permissions granted and denied to specific users and groups for individual objects. Microsoft Provisioning System flows through the security context of a request, so it can support multiple roles with different security policies and permissions. Additionally, individual components implement specific functionality for secure provisioning of services and support.
