Disables the user interface for creating and assigning roles and permissions.
Secure Permissions is an advanced security module for Drupal. It disables the Roles and Permissions editing screens and lets all user roles and permissions be handled through code. This adds an extra layer of security, as the site's permission can no longer be misconfigured accidentally.
This module was inspired the security paradigm of the Plone platform. See, in particular, 'Problem A2: Broken Access Control' in the Plone documentation.
This module was written in Drupal 7. The Drupal 6 version requires the Permissions API module, which contains functions native to Drupal 7.
