Kernel's Sign-On/System Security tools provide the means for signing into your computing system with a unique identity. When you sign on to the VISTA computer system, you are required to enter an access code and a verify code. These codes identify you to the computer system and serve to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Once you have completed the sign-on process, Kernel provides you with menus where you can run any application the system manager has made available to you.
Add new users - create a new user account.
access by profile - grant menu access to one or more users based on
a user profile.
an existing user - edit the attributes of an existing user.
a user - disable the ability of a user to access your system.
a user - re-enable access for a user who has been terminated.
Inquiry - display information about users on your system.
Kernel also provides a set of options to help monitor and support users logged on to your system. Many audits may be printed to ensure security to your system. These include:
a User - find a user that is currently signed onto your system.
List User - lists all users know to your system.
Inquiry - displays various attributes of a specified user.
Status Report - displays users currently signed on to your system.
Sign-On audits - displays sign on activity.
Access Attempt Audit - reports entries of invalid access/verify code
The system manager is responsible for granting file access. The needs of each user must be determined and an appropriate access authority code assigned. Kernel's File Access Security tools provide an added security measure to protect modifications and viewing of your FileMan databases. With file access security, it is possible to know who has access to which files and what kind of access they have.
