Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides the ability to manage permissions on the following objects:

  • Individual lists

  • Individual libraries

  • Individual folders

  • Individual documents

  • List items within lists

  • List items within libraries

You might have sensitive information stored in a particular securable object. A securable object might be a list, library, folder within a list or library, document, or list item. If you do not want to expose the information to all users of a site, you can restrict some users and SharePoint groups from accessing a particular securable object.

Any users with the Manage Permissions permission on a particular securable object can manage permissions on that particular securable object.

By default, Site Owners have the Manage Permissions permission. Any user with the Full Control permission on a particular securable object can also manage permissions on that securable object.
