I am new to SharePoint 2010 and want to restrict access to sites that are withing my main SharePoint Portal. For instance one of the sites that I have setup IT in this example, I want to restrict access to anyone seeing the IT site content however I noticed that since NT Authority\Authenticated Users has contribute permissions on this URL or site that I cannot block anyone. If I remove the account then my users cannot access the main portal page. How do I go about removing permissions from the actual NT Authority account. They should only see the main Portal Page and the pages that they have specific permissions to. Thank you

You will need to keep the permissions on the top level as they are and then break permissions for the subesite/pages and remove the a Authenticated users from there.

This could end up in quite a lot of work. What you really want is break permissions on the higher level and leave the lower levels to be the default, but that option doesn't exist.

To make thigns easier. You could create 2 site collections.

The first one is your toplevel site ( with all users having access to the site)
The second site collection you remove the all users and this is the site whcih contans the content that need specific permissions.

Thank You, It was simply a matter of removing the CORP\domain users and NT Authority\Authenticated Users from my site pages permissions.
