Basic Concepts of OpenDOF Security
DOF Security and the Authentication Server (AS)
As part of DOF security, an Authentication Server (AS) is used to authenticate the credentials of each component on a network. The AS centralizes security information, creating a shared trust environment—without exposing credentials—while allowing full access control. This means you have control over who (or which resources) has access and what levels of access they have. A single AS can also provide multiple security domains.
