    Yes, storage of data is a significant issue. ADAM might be a possibility, but SQL Server would be better.

    Leaving AzMan aside, my conclusion about standard .NET "role based security" is that it isn't actually suitable for proper role based access control at all. The reasoning is that it doesn't provide a means to assign permissions/operations to user-defined roles at run-time, or allow administrators to dynamically change those role-permission assignments. Is that a valid conclusion ?
