Security management systems

The type of security that you implement depends on what products are installed at your site. The MainView Alarm Management environment provides an interface to ESMs by using standard System Authorization Facility (SAF) calls.

Like any security interface, windows-mode security does not actually protect resources itself. Instead, the interface identifies MainView Alarm Management resources to your ESM and asks if a user is authorized to access those resources.

You can secure a product at a high level (such as general access to the product) and at much lower levels (for example, whether a user can use a specific command, or access a specific view). MainView Alarm Management supports security products such as IBM Resource Access Control Facility (RACF), Computer Associates CA Top Secret and CA ACF2, and various 'in house' security programs.

For more information about securing your resources, see Managing security for MainView products. You can also use the SERDEF views to list the available resources.
