Configuration items in Configuration Manager 2007 can be secured so that only designated administrators can manage them with assigned permissions.

Right-click the configuration item that you want to configure for security permissions, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.
On the Security tab, configure the security permissions you require, and then click OK.
Note For more information about the options in the Security tab, see Properties - Security Tab Tab.
