But after that, how does the server know who I am during the course of my 'visits' and how does the SQL database know what I have access to ( only my projects ) and what I don't have access to ( Other peoples projects)?

I do not necessarily believe him. I have looked at other questions and answers
, but would like to know what you think. I should mention that a login and password is used to access the network at this institution, even for the wireless network.
