I'll use this site as an example to make it more concrete. You log into this site with a user id you created. This is not an id that the database knows about. Once you log in, our forum software executes database queries on your behalf. This database id is a "system id." The database is protected against users by the application. End users do not know the database password nor can they run queries against it directly. They can only run queries the application has created and are therefore protected/safe.
