Well, security is usually about access to data, and any application
should defer that to the operating system. So for example, if your
data is on shared drives, you'd control access via share permissions.
If your data is in a PostGIS database, you'd just use PostgreSQL user
access controls. Qgis doesn't enter into it.
What sort of thing did you have in mind?
