CA SDM lets you specify user access authentication and the features available by access control and management.
User Access Authentication
CA SDM Web Services provides two access authentication schemes. They are associated with the new access control and management feature, which uses an access policy.
  • User Name/Password
    Verifies the User Name/Password, as described in previous releases of the product.
  • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Technology
    Verifies that the person requesting the access has ownership of a certain private key.
If you plan to use an application that accesses this version of CA SDM Web Services, we recommend strongly that you first define a Web Service Access Policy, complete with its code value, in CA SDM. A default access policy with a policy code of DEFAULT is available when CA SDM is installed and configured.
