0423 Security Definitions

Security, particularly access control, is an important form of governance that preserves exclusive access to specific resources for particular actors.

SecurityGroup and SecurityGroupMembership

The SecurityGroup represents a group of actors that need to be given the same access to a specific set of resources.

The actors in a security group have the group's qualifiedName listed in their SecurityGroupMembership classification attached to one of their UserIdentity entities.



SecurityTags identify labels and properties that are used in determining which data protection rules should be executed when particular data is requests. They can be attached to assets or schema elements depending on the scope of data that the security tags apply to. The synchronized access control feature describes how security tags are set up and used.
