fares007,

From:  http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1516429,00.asp

Rates security as good.

In some ways, however, user management was a mixed bag in tests. We liked the new profile information in the portal, especially the ability to integrate this information with Active Directory. On the other hand, when setting up the portal and SharePoint Services, we had to choose between using standard Windows domain accounts for portal users or Active Directory—and this cannot be changed later.

In addition, to allow outside or temporary users to access the portal sites, we had to choose the Active Directory mode. This may force many companies to maintain separate portal infrastructures for internal users and external and temporary users.

Probably the biggest weakness in SharePoint Portal Server, as is the case with many Microsoft products, is the way it locks companies into using only Microsoft products—and mainly new Microsoft products—to support and interact with the portal. However, when it comes to straight portlets, almost any application can be integrated into the portal.

Your question is not clear 100% clear but here's a stab in the dark.

In sharepoint you setup "Document areas" to put your documents in, You have large control over who has access and how much access they have to the entire "Document Area".

However withing each document area you can add Structural folders to help to organise the documents. There is no way to add or amend the security on the folders within a "Document area".


So basically if you want certain documents to be secure they have to be put into a seperate "Document Area" which has been setup with the required security information.
