Manage Security Groups

Manage Security Groups

Authorization of user activities within the Enterprise Cloud, both Infinicenter Console and the API, is based upon Role Based Access Control (RBAC). RBAC is a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standard.See Role Based Access Control for a full discussion of RBAC as implemented in the Enterprise Cloud.

In the Enterprise Cloud, basic RBAC is implemented through user Roles. Roles permit administrators to restrict access for every business operation of Infinicenter Console based on the role of the user. Enterprise Cloud also offers role-based control over devices assigned to specific security groups, which is implemented through device Security Groups and security group level roles.
