Overview of Team Foundation Security

Visual Studio 2005

To help secure Team Foundation Server, you must understand how Team Foundation Server works and how it communicates with other Team Foundation components. A Team Foundation Server administrator should be familiar with Windows authentication, network protocols and traffic, and the structure of the business network on which Team Foundation Server is installed, in addition to an understanding of Team Foundation Server groups and permissions.

Security Concepts and Architecture

Team Foundation Server security concepts include user and group security, Team Foundation Server permissions and how they interact, and communication between Team Foundation components. You should review these concepts carefully before planning your Team Foundation Server deployment.

  • Team Foundation Server architecture is discussed in the Team Foundation Server Administrator's Guide. For more information about Team Foundation Server architecture see Team Foundation Server Security Architecture.

  • Team Foundation Server topology, authorization, and authentication are also described in the Team Foundation Server Administrator's Guide. For more information about these concepts, see Team Foundation Server Security Concepts.

  • User and group security is an important component of Team Foundation Server. For more information about security for users and groups, see Team Foundation Server Security for Users and Groups.

  • Setting and managing permissions in Team Foundation Server is important for Team Foundation Server project and server security. For more information about Team Foundation Server permissions, see Managing Permissions.
