6.5. Permissions: managing access to your site

We’re now going to discuss anonymous access and show how to enable all users on your intranet or via the internet to see the contents of the site. After we cover anonymous access, we’ll then dive into list, item, and subsite permissions. You’ll want to ensure that some of the information is locked down to prevent everyone from having access to all of your content.

6.5.1. Anonymous access

I’ll get started by making sure you understand what anonymous access is. This is a published SharePoint, and anyone regardless of credentials has access to it. If it’s an intranet scenario, such as at work, it will be open to anyone on the network. In this case, we’re accessing it via the web, so it’s available to anyone via the internet. Naturally, you don’t want everyone to see all of the details, so I’ll show you how to lock down certain aspects of the site in sections 6.6.2 and 6.6.3, so only authenticated users can get to the content. For example, in figure 6.10 you can see what an anonymous user would see if they were to navigate to my site. You can tell they’re not authenticated because the Sign In prompt shows in the upper-right corner.
