security.manager – ArcGIS Edition

con terra security.manager – ArcGIS Edition allows the assignment of individual access permissions to different user groups, thereby ensuring that everyone gets access only to what they are entitled to.


Decide who shall see what
con terra security.manager – ArcGIS Edition controls access to services, right down to layer and feature level and to spatial extents. While a service is published only once, security.manager – ArcGIS Edition can enable different views for different users, by limiting access according to a user's policies. In doing this, security.manager – ArcGIS Edition provides a consistent user experience together with a holistic security approach. This means, that users will not get any information about the existence of content they are not entitled to, and permissions need to be explicitly expressed in the system. Everything that is not explicitly allowed is automatically forbidden, to ensure that access cannot be granted by accident.

Security at your fingertips
The administration for security.manager – ArcGIS Edition is fully integrated into the ArcGIS Server Manager and allows for the definition of fine-grained access policies, easily and fast. It takes just a few clicks to assign permissions for resources, and a few more clicks to create additional filters on feature or spatial level. Once a policy is created, it is already active, and access in granted accordingly.

Seamless integration
The beauty of a security system lies in its transparency. A user working with a security.manager-protected service will not even realize that security measures are in place. Adding security.manager – ArcGIS Edition to a service will not change the user experience, nor will it have a noticeable impact on performance. The user will work as they do with every other service, just in a limited way.



The Concept
For ArcGIS for Server, the ArcGIS Edition moves right into an ArcGIS Server Object. Being implemented as a Server Object Interceptor (SOI), security.manager – ArcGIS Edition is not added to, but is integrated into a service. It acts like an extension to ArcGIS, and it also integrates seamlessly into the ArcGIS Server Manager application, thereby extending ArcGIS for Server's authorization capabilities. In order to deploy security.manager – ArcGIS Edition, just upload it as an ArcGIS Extension, configure it, activate it, and start creating policies.
