Overview of security considerations

As an administrator, you are responsible for the security of your ClearCase deployment.

ClearCase security depends on host and network security. Therefore, ensure that you have met the security requirements for your deployment infrastructure as well as those for ClearCase itself.

Authentication and identity management




You can use the cleartool lshistory command to list VOB database events affecting filesystem objects, hyperlinks, types, storage pools, the VOB object itself, and VOB replicas. Alternatively, use the Rational ClearCase History Browser for Windows.

Firewall configuration

If you use file-based packet transportation to synchronize VOB replicas, refer to Store-and-forward through a firewall (Linux and the UNIX system only).
