security related tables in SQL Server

I am trying to document some useful security related tables in SQL Server (2000, 2005 and 2008) that would be of interest to auditors to create an account with read only access permissions to query those. Can you detail which are the main security related tables/views in SQL Server (so perhaps those with account information, permission information, physical file information (i.e. where is the database), etc.

I don't think you need to document those tables. They are already documented. An auditor might be interested in reviewing these ones:

But they will not look into tables only, you can have a better understading on SQL security by reviewing the following:
