Understanding MTS Security - Using Role-Based Security to Limit Use of an MTS Package to Specific Users

In its default state, an MTS package is not very secure, and therefore its member components are not secure. Any client on the network can use components in a package after it is first created. This could potentially be dangerous if the components expose business-critical functionality, such as performing financial transactions or providing access to proprietary data. Also, components might be built to perform administrative actions for an enterprise system. It is easy to see the need for securing MTS objects.

Adding security is a painless process. For components to be secured, the following three things must happen:

  • Roles must be created for the package that contains components that require security.

  • Roles must be assigned to the components that need to be secured.

  • Authorization checking must be enabled for the package
