Try the Codex:


Then you'll want to look at the function current_user_can(), and 
probably create your own special privilege to check whether the user 
is the correct one to edit the data.

For future reference, the best starting point for dev questions is 
"Developer Documentation", which will lead you to "Plugin Resources", 
"Function Reference", etc.
