Permissions & Security in Plone

Friday,  Jun 19 | 09:00AM - 09:45AM US ET

Long Talk

Level: Beginner

Topic(s):

Data security makes news headlines, often for the wrong reasons, when it has not been implemented correctly, or when it has been added to systems as an afterthought.

Plone is a secure, open source web content management system that is written in Python and has been under active development since 2001.

One of Plone's great strengths is its baked-in security model, which is comprised of:

  • object- and field-level permissions
  • roles
  • groups
  • workflow states, transitions, and guards

In this talk, I will explain the elements of Plone's time-tested security model and I will show how these elements work together to help developers create websites and web applications that are secure by default.
