Ultimately the permissions and security should be built into the product and not applied to the object in Zope. However it's not too hard as a last resort.

Painful, but it would work. I'm looking for something a little more elegant. That, to me, is like using a butcher's knife where a scalpel is more appropriate. It's also harder to reconstruct for the inevitable rebuild.

You could try going into the ZMI and using the 'security' tab on the product to restrict who can view and edit the type.

A couple of weeks ago, I asked for help on this, but the problem still remains. I have added some products to my Plone and they have generated tabs and/or elements a user can add from the drop-down in their folder. I want to edit that behavior, but I don't know where to go to do that. I've tried the following:

Unchecking "visible" in portal_controlpanel doesn't help.
Unchecking "implicitly addable?" in portal_types doesn't help.

Two weeks ago, Sean Fulmer suggested the following:

I only found one of many there. Am I to add my own? Is there a how-to on how to do this? This is no trivial chore! Where else might the controls for this be hiding?

Here's the one I found. It has the following:
Condition: python:portal.portal_membership.checkPermission("Manage portal",here)
Permission: View
Yet anyone, not just the manager, can view this and even add one. Should I change the following as so and then make sure the permissions are properly set for the same?
Permission: Add KZBannerAd Tools

Confused and frustrated. Would appreciate help.

Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
