Security practices for IBM UrbanCode Release
You can help ensure that your installation is secure and set up user access controls.
- Enabling security during the installation process
- Enabling secure communication between multiple applications
- Ports, protocols, and services
- Customizing your security settings
- Setting up user roles and access
Enabling security during the installation process
During the installation process, by default the server is configured to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure communication. This default configuration is true for manual and for silent installations. In addition to SSL communication, role-based access controls are available that determine what actions a particular user can do.
In general, you configure security on the application server or the database server, not in IBM® UrbanCode™ Release. IBM UrbanCode Release communicates with the database by using the Java™ Database Connectivity (JDBC) provider on the application server.
To learn about configuring security, see Security.
Enabling secure communication between multiple applications

Except for the default admin password, all passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. After you change the default admin password, it is also stored in encrypted form.
Setting up user roles and accessYou can create and delete users, and create groups and assign users to those groups, in IBM UrbanCode Release. In IBM UrbanCode Release, the superuser account with special security privileges is Admin.
