The GSA Connector Framework
1. The GSA provides a feed interface from
which the search appliance receives
documents to index.
2. The AAC communicates with the search
appliance over HTTP and with the
connectors, and creates feed sources from
the documents, metadata, and URLs from a
content management system (CMS).
3. The AAC creates instances of a connector
through its service provider interface (SPI)
and then calls the classes and methods of The All Access Connector is a suite of Java
the connector to perform work.
applications containing methods and classes
4. The connector communicates through the
API to the CMS to acquire documents, that Google's connector manager calls to
metadata on each document, and a URLs perform the tasks of acquiring documents
that point to a document's location in the from a content system and authenticates and
content management system. authorizes end users to view search results
5. The connector communicates through the
API over HTTP to the web client on the
content management system.
6. A CMS also provides a content server that
stores documents in a storage system known
as a repository.

Security: HP TRIM Connector for GSA
It is possible through our connector API to retrieve the ACL of each item of the
repository (document or folder).
Provided that the connector supports security
The ACL lists every user and group that has some permissions on the item,
along with the granted rights.
The connector takes care of repository-specific security features, like
Security inheritance, shared ACLs, superuser/administrator roles, etc. so
that the returned list is the effective ACL of the item.
Repository-specific permissions are mapped onto well-known permissions
such as "view content", "write content", "delete", etc.
The connector API provides methods to navigate group membership to find
out which groups a given user, or group, is a member.
When replicating ACLs (early binding), the list of user and groups that can
view the document is stored in each document metadata.
It is also possible to replicate the user directory (users and groups). At
runtime, when a user performs a search, the system can obtain the list of
groups of which the user is a member, and use this list to perform the search,
thus limiting the results to what the user is authorized to see.
