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

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

Ports, protocols, and services

The following table shows the default port numbers for the HTTP, HTTPS, and Java Message Service (JMS) ports.

Port type Default port number
HTTP 8080
HTTPS 8443
Communication with the IBM Common Licensing server Port 27000 for the lmrgd daemon. The port numbers for the vendor daemon can change, but are typically between 27001 and 27009. See your IBM Common Licensing server for the active ports.

Customizing your security settings

The only user ID created by default is admin. To change the password for admin, click Settings > Authentication (Users).

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 access

You 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.
