rest api user authentication for CRUD rights

I'm curious about the rights provided to CRUD operations via REST API.

Does the current SF user's credentials get used to provide access to the data being requested? ie. one user gets to see all records in Read-Only, whereas another user might get access to some records with Update rights.

Totally depends on the authentication mechanism you set up as the basis for the REST model.  It can be a single API user,  or it can be the specific credientials of each user.  Look at the Authentication Providers node of the Data Sources tab...

Does Skuid have any examples of the current SF user credentials being used to do CRUD operations on a data source?
