I have a split and secured database but even though I've managed to do this,
I'm not entirely clear on where permissions, passwords, and the like are
stored. My questions are: Are object permissions stored with the object
(queries, forms and the like) in the front-end? (This means a change in
object permissions requires re-issuing the front-end to users.) Where are
user's passwords stored? Exactly what is stored in the security.mdw file?

Object permissions are stored with the object in the frontend, so yes a
change to the permissions, is a change to the FE, requiring re-distribution.

Users' passwords are stored in the mdw file.

The mdw file stores Groups, Users, PIDs, passwords, membership (what
users in what groups).
