You should be able to find a more accurate description in the archives, but
my memory is that when you run a security definer function in a view
(this shouldn't apply if it is used as a default for a column in the view) it
runs with the authority of the view creator ran than the function creator.
In practice that probably isn't a problem, since normally they would be
the same person.
