Each forum can be associated with a documents library. The library is created upon the first request for it. For more information, see For developers: Get the forum library.
The library is used to store the attachments of the posts submitted in the forum. It is of type DocumentLibrary and you can store any types of files in it.
The difference between this library and a manually created library is that the forum library uses a download security provider of type AttachmentDownloadSecurityProvider. This provider uses the forums security instead the default libraries security, to determine whether the attachment can be downloaded.
