Security Administration Overview

Security Administration Overview

To add security to the TDM Server, you can configure Kerberos authentication, password encryption, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, and the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.
You can implement Kerberos authentication for the Test Data Manager. TDM also supports Kerberos authentication for specific source and connection types.
You can also configure the TDM Server to use SSL and TLS. When you configure SSL and TLS, you ensure secure communication with the Informatica domain.
TDM also supports SSL authentication for source and target connections.
Implement password encryption for additional security. Use the command line interface to encrypt the password for the PowerCenter repository. If you implement SSL, you can also use the command line interface to encrypt the keystore password and the password for the command line interface
To log users out of the Test Data Manager after a period of inactivity, configure session timeout.
For information on how to configure Kerberos network authentication, see the
Informatica Security Guide
