Securing the environment
In secure environments, TADDM enforces authentication to help protect confidential information.
You can use the Data Management Portal to configure user accounts. Each user must have a valid user account to use the Data Management Portal to access discovered information about network and infrastructure components.
In the discovery process, the TADDM server uses Secure Shell (SSH) protocol to securely communicate with all computer hosts and other devices that support SSH.
The server supports both key-based SSH authentication, and login-based, password-based SSH authentication. When login-based, password-based SSH authentication is used, the user names and passwords that you define in the access list are used to log in to the computer hosts to be discovered.
