Securing Winforms application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Which forum is best for this?

    I am looking for some information on how to secure a winforms application similar to the ASP.Net Configuration app for a web application.

    I am using vs2005 and have a SQLExpress2005 database.

    I am interested in creating roles for individuals, so they are allowed the ability to only perform specific tasks and access to certain screens.

    Is my only choice to create a table of roles and then check this every time they move around in the application?

    Is there some kind of add-in that can be used to perform this task?
