Security Analysis

Monitor also provides a security analysis report that aids the administrator in further locking down the various pieces of data that may contain sensitive information.

This report is available via Admin > System > Security Information. The report highlights items that are not secure and provides instructions for securing them. This functionality is only available if the Monitor server is running on UNIX.

View and Edit ACLs

As previously mentioned, the underlying mechanism that provides these security measures is provided by the subsystem ACL functionality. To view and/or manually edit ACLs for a license daemon object, visit the Security Information page and click on one of the license daemon object IDs at the bottom of the page. The resulting ACL control page is meant for advanced users who are familiar with the Access Control List system.
