SharePoint Tutorial - Security

Security in SharePoint is comprised of users, groups and roles.

Users, Groups and Roles

A user account comes from the authentication system. For example, if Active Directory is used to authenticate then the user accounts will come from it.

There are two types of groups SharePoint uses: domain groups and SharePoint groups.

Security trimmed URL throws an error if not logged in

On a Moss 2007 site, using FBA - I have an issue with security trimmed items within Lists.   There is not a problem with direct url links to non-list items.  
For list items - here is the problem, when a user is not logged in and follows a direct url link from an email or newsletter to security trimmed items within a list - it throws an error instead of offering a redirect to login?

More info:  This is only occurring for individually security trimmed list items that have had anonymous access removed.  When a whole list or library has had anonymous removed, the links work fine (login page appears, log in, taken to original link).

Why is that and is there a way to avoid the error?

If it is of help, this is the error. Thanks in advance.

Passing values from web page to custom security trimmer in SharePoint 2010

Hi, In SharePoint 2007 we had a custom security trimmer that implemented ISecurityTrimmer interface. We also had a custom webpart used for search. Now, using HttpContext we passed values from the webpart to security trimmer with additional info needed to trim the results. It worked since trimmer was executed in the same w3wp process as webpart. Now in SharePoint 2010, the architecture for ISecurityTrimmer2 has changed, as it's executed in search process (other w3wp) - not the webpart w3wp so it has no access to the HttpContext. Question is: how to pass custom data, in form of the string, to a security trimmer when search is done from custom code in webart?

really dont understand security on Sharepoint

Security issue using Sharepoint designer. I think this is more administration than Sharepoint designer. Have created a site where designers will update pages,CSS,Master pages. I have put these users in the Designers sharepoint group. I have branded the site initially and now passed this to the designers. The issue I have is the designers cant checkout and ammend master pages or css's even though the description of the group says this.They come up 'ACCESS DENIED' 'Members of this group can edit lists, document libraries, and pages in the site. Designers can create Master Pages and Page Layouts in the Master Page Gallery and can change the behavior and appearance of each site in the site collection by using master pages and CSS files. ' I have also tried to put the users on the site owners group but have 'ACCESS DENIED' and no luck. However if I make them a secondary administrators from site setting it works fine. I need to know the correct planning of roles in Sharepoint and what groups . The designers will ammend pages,page layouts,ammend master pages. Thanks
