User Security

User Security

The Service Manager and some application services control user security in application clients. Application clients include Informatica Administrator, Informatica Analyst, Informatica Developer, Metadata Manager, and PowerCenter Client.
The Service Manager and application services control user security by performing the following functions:
Encryption
When you log in to an application client, the Service Manager encrypts the password.
Authentication
When you log in to an application client, the Service Manager authenticates your user account based on your user name and password or on your user authentication token.
Authorization
When you request an object in an application client, the Service Manager and some application services authorize the request based on your privileges, roles, and permissions.
You can also use HTTPS for secure connection to the domain and the application services. The following application services provide HTTPS connection along with the Informatica domain:
  • Data Integration Service
  • Analyst Service
  • Content Management Service
  • Metadata Manager Service
  • Web Service Hub Service
