Appendix B. Security

LAM configuration passwords

LAM supports a two level authorization system for its configuration. Therefore, there are two types of configuration passwords:

  • master configuration password: needed to change general settings, create/delete server profiles and self service profiles

  • server profile password: used to change the settings of a server profile (e.g. LDAP server and account types to manage)

The master configuration password can be used to reset a server profile password. Each server profile has its own profile password.

Both password types are stored as hash values in the configuration files for enhanced security.
