View Full Version : InfoPath Security

07-17-2008, 02:47 AM
I have had a friend ask me about InfoPath (which I have never used, but he is currently using), and he was wondering how secure it is to use.

For example, they want to have different sections visible to different users, with different fields hiding or appearing depending on their level of authority. If there was a hidden field, how easy is it for an experienced user to obtain the hidden information?

Note: this is NOT a request on how to do this, so please do NOT post examples of how to bypass security (as this is against the terms and conditions of the site). I am just curious as to how secure Infopath is, as I have heard that word isn't secure with its protection, and curious if Infopath is any different.
