15.18. Summary

This chapter described how you share folders to enable users to access shared or network applications and to provide access to shared data. As we note, shares should not be left wide open by admitting the Everyone group to the share with Full Control. Users should be admitted to shares as members of groups and not individually.

Folder and file permissions are the domain of the NTFS. The permissions provide true network security and access control. Permissions can be complex and cumbersome to manage on a large network with many users, groups, and network resources. We stress strong documentation, change-control record keeping, and tracking as commonsense practices in providing access and security to network files and folders.
