Informatica Domain Security

This section describes security enhancements to the Informatica domain.
You can run Informatica with Kerberos authentication and Microsoft Active Directory (AD) directory service. Kerberos authentication provides single sign-on capability to Informatica domain client applications. The Informatica domain supports Active Directory 2008 R2.
Informatica clients can run on a Windows network that uses two-factor authentication.
You can specify a keyword to generate a unique encryption key for encrypting sensitive data such as passwords that are stored in the domain.
You can configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run PowerCenter workflows securely. The
Enable Data Encryption
option enables secure communication between the PowerCenter Integration Service and the Data Transformation Manager (DTM) process and between DTM processes.
The Informatica domain includes an Administrator group with default administrator privileges. You can add users to or remove users from the Administrator group. You cannot delete the Administrator group.
When you configure account lockout in the Administrator tool, you can enforce account lockout for administrator user accounts. The
Admin Account Lockout
option enables lockout for administrator user accounts. When you enable the
Account Lockout
option, you can also enable the
Admin Account Lockout
option.
You can use the Informatica relational database drivers to connect to a secure Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2 database. You can create repositories, sources, and targets on databases secured with SSL certificates.
In the Administrator tool, you can generate audit reports to get information on users and groups in the Informatica domain. For example, you can get information about a user account, such as the privileges and permissions assigned to the user and the groups associated with the user.
