With roles and users in place on the site, we have a good start, but we aren't actually controlling access very well until we set up the permissions to go with those. In this lesson we need to set permissions for our roles, and take a look at some important security concerns around permissions. Finally, we'll test our access control by logging in as our users to make sure everything is acting as it should.
