when we see that grantor (dbo) has granted permissions to grantee (public), does this have any significance?

only dbo can grant permission to public, anyways?

and also all permissions to public (the system objects) are granted at the database creation, automatically, right?

thanks

This is dependant upon how the model database is set out. New databases are created as a copy of MODEL.

With regards to your fist line regarding grantor grantee. This is how the system is built to begin with.

Yes, its what permission the PUBLIC role has in the model database. As upon new database creation these will be copied to the new db.

got it-thanks.

also, in other words, grantor(dbo) always has more previledges/authority than grantee(public), right?

No not necessarily. The grantor is just the database user that granted the permission. Nothing more.

OK- but in terms of public and guest, only dbo (or sysadmin) can grant it to them?
