Securing GIS Services in 9.3

June 26, 2008

How to secure the GIS services and Web applications in ArcGIS Server 9.3

In the 9.3 release, many of common security tasks can be done in ArcGIS Server Manager. Instead of editing configuration files, use the Manager user interface to configure security for the Web GIS. Here are the tasks that can be accomplished using Manager:

• Create and manage users
• Create and manage roles/groups
• Create and manage permissions for Web services and Web applications
• Configure the stores for users, roles and permissions
• Deploy services and applications with security enabled
Managing finer-grained access to Web applications and Web services are still done through custom code in ArcGIS Server 9.3.
