Multi-layered Hitachi ID Management Suite Security Architecture
Hitachi ID Management Suite is designed to be secure. It is protected using a multi-layered security architecture, which includes running on a hardened OS, using file system ACLs, providing strong application-level user authentication, filtering user inputs, encrypting sensitive data, enforcing application-level ACLs and storing log data indefinitely.
Hitachi ID Management Suite never requires plaintext passwords to be stored in configuration files or scripts and does not store plaintext passwords anywhere. Hitachi ID Management Suite does not ship with a default administrator password -- one must be typed in at installation time.
These security measures are illustrated in Figure [link].
