What is difference between Security and Safety ?


  • Safety is rather protection against accidental events;
    security is rather protection against intentional damages.

    e.g. Implementing .NET Security in C# - CodeAccessSecurity:

    // By default deny access to the C Drive.....  CodeAccessPermission UserPermission = 5.     new FileIOPermission(FileIOPermissionAccess.AllAccess,@"c:\");

    Thread Safety is a example of safety.
