Since the apps are written by you and you are using the embedded engine, you have some choices. For example you could offer a central security repository which would share user profiles amongst your apps. In that case, the security/profile manager should be deployed as a separate element, otherwise you would not be able to upgrade the embedded engine without updating all of the applications at the same time.
