Flash CS4 Resources
Flash Player provides three different user-level mechanisms for setting permissions: the Settings UI and Settings Manager, and the User Flash Player Trust directory.
The Settings UI and Settings Manager
The Settings UI is a quick, interactive mechanism for configuring the settings for a specific domain. The Settings Manager presents a more detailed interface and provides the ability to make global changes that affect permissions for many or all domains. Additionally, when a new permission is requested by a SWF file, requiring run-time decisions concerning security or privacy, dialog boxes are displayed in which users can adjust some Flash Player settings.
The Settings Manager and Settings UI provide security-related options such as camera and microphone settings, shared object storage settings, settings related to legacy content, and so on.
Note: Any settings made in the mms.cfg file (see Administrator controls) are not reflected in the Settings Manager.

They can interact with any other SWF files, and they can load data from anywhere, remote or local. A user designates a file as trusted in the User Flash Player Trust directory, which is in same directory as the shared object storage area, in the following locations (locations are specific to the current user):
