  • 1. New BOE Xi 3.x security concepts
  • 2. 1 BO5 or BO6 security concepts 2 BOE Xi R2 security concepts 3 BOE Xi 3.x security: What’s new ? 4 Migration and implementation: Challenges 5 360view: replace the CMC, security administration is so easy
  • 3. • Security definition: User rights and restrictions = links between actors ( user or group ) and universes – universe overloads, documents, applications-security commands, domains and stored procedures. • Supervisor: “user centric” security vision. • “user centric” security implementation • Group inheritance: Nearest value selected. • Only 3 ways to implement security. Easy to administrate. • A user can belong to more than one group: User instances. • Effective right calculation depending on object. BO5 or BO6 security: Reminder
  • 4. 1 BO5 or BO6 security concepts 2 BOE Xi R2 security concepts 3 BOE Xi 3.x security: What’s new ? 4 Migration and implementation: Challenges 5 360view: replace the CMC, security administration is so easy
  • 5. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Folders • Under BOE Xir2, universes and documents are stored within folders. • Objects can be stored in one folder only. There are four folder trees. • Think like Windows. It is a set of doors. Unlimited folder tree (documents & universes)
  • 6. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Groups • Group structure is no longer a classic tree like under legacy BO. A group can belong to more than one group. A kind of acyclic graph: • Create two group trees: Functional groups and technical groups.
  • 7. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Users • A user can belong to more than one group (the Everyone group, a technical group and a functional one).
  • 8. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Security matrix Explicit right Closed system Inherited right Double héritage: Dossier et Groupe Rights double inheritance: Folder and Group
  • 9. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Rights overloads • Explicit rights override inherited rights:
  • 10. BOE Xir2 security concepts: Rights • 3 possible explicit values on security commands: - Explicitly granted (OK): User or group is given the right. - Explicitly denied (KO): User or group is denied the right. - Not specified (NA): No right assignment. • Effective rights (user real rights) = explicit rights aggregation. Note: “NS” means “Not Specified • “ NS ” can be largely used because it does not have any effect on effective rights calculation. Used with “ OK ” or “ KO ”, it is transparent. NS OK KO OK+NS KO+NS OK+KO Xir2 Objects KO OK KO OK KO KO
  • 11. 1 BO5 or BO6 security concepts 2 BOE Xi R2 security concepts 3 BOE Xi 3.x security: What’s new ? 4 Migration and implementation: Challenges 5 360view: replace the CMC, security administration is so easy
  • 12. BOE Xi 3.x security: General info • New CMC interface: Training session needed. • No modification on contents / actors: - Folders organization remains the same: 4 folder trees. - No change on groups structure. - Still 2 category trees. - Servers and connections unchanged. • New kind of objects: Access level are objects like others. - Predefined Access Level (NA, VOD, FC …). - Custom profiles. Set of security commands. - Security on them within a matrix. - Advanced rights still exist.
  • 13. BOE Xi 3.x security: Rights • Rights are now divided in collection: General, Content, Application and System. • Rights have been duplicated on content: Hundreds of rights. • Content rights overload general rights. General right set: Schedule Objects prohibited Content right overloads General settings: Schedule Deski Documents allowed. Net result: Schedule documents not allowed except Deski documents.
  • 14. BOE Xi 3.x security: Folder / Object • Content rights possible on Folders. • Descending right: Add object. • Ascending right: Delete object. General right set: Add Objects allowed. Content right overloads General settings: Add Subfolder not allowed. Net result: Add Subfolder not allowed. Add Documents allowed.
  • 15. BOE Xi 3.x security: Universes list • Granularity possible on accessible Universes. • List of universes to refresh documents: • List of universes to create / modify queries:
  • 16. BOE Xi 3.x security: Folder inheritance 1/2 • You can specify whether or not a right is applied at: - Object level (only at door level) - Sub Object level - Or both.
  • 17. BOE Xi 3.x security: Folder inheritance 2/2 • Impact on rights inheritance: Right only applied for one door and not to sub doors!
  • 18. BOE Xi 3.x security: Inheritance • It is possible to override explicitly denied rights. • It is possible to explicitly deny a right at a top level and then explicitly granted the same right at a lower level (without breaking inheritance like in Xi r2):
  • 19. BOE Xi 3.x security: Security settings • First door is no longer transparent. - You can no longer applied NA access level to all top level doors. • You can apply multiple rights at one intersection.
  • 20. BOE Xi 3.x security: Effective rights • Effective rights (user real rights) = explicit rights aggregation. Note: ‟NS” means ‟Not specified” • Rights inherited from groups. Could be multiple rights. • Effective rights calculation now also depends on: - Rights set on Content. - Type of folder inheritance. NS OK KO OK+NS KO+NS OK+KO Xi 3.x Objects KO OK KO OK KO KO
  • 21. BOE Xi 3.x security: What’s new? • You can apply right at content level. Content rights override general rights. • You can override an explicitly denied right at a lower level. • You can apply a right at folder level and at sub folders level. • You can apply multiple rights between a folder and a group. • You can apply granularity on the list of universes you want to use for report creation or modification.

  • 23. Xi security implementation / migration: Challenges • BOE Xi 3.x security model is powerful. • Understand the new security concepts. Take advantage of them. Redesign your security model. • Challenges of security migration or implementation: Challenge 1: Manage the repository post migration or post implementation, whilst limiting administration tasks and by offering an optimum quality of service to end-users Challenge 2: Implement and Document your Xi security.
