AS2005 Dimension Security paper

There’s a new paper on how dimension security is implemented in AS2005 available on Richard Tkachuk’s site. Not an awful lot seems to have changed although the attribute-based dimensional model has (as you would expect) made things a bit more complex; and you can now define security on a dimenion and have this applied to all cubes that dimension is linked to, rather than have to put the same security definition on each cube.
