Vantage security is based on the following concepts.
|User||An individual or group of individuals represented by a single user identity|
|Privileges||Database privileges explicitly or automatically granted to a user or database|
|Logon||Process of submitting user credentials when requesting access to the database|
|Authentication||Process by which the user identified in the logon is verified|
|Authorization||Process that determines the database privileges available to the user|
|Security Mechanism||Method that provides specific authentication, confidentiality, and integrity services for a database session|
|Network Traffic Protection||Process for protecting message traffic between the database and mainframe-attached and workstation-attached clients against interception, theft, or other form of attack|
|Message Integrity||Checks data sent across the network against what was received to make sure no data was lost or changed|
|Access Logs||Logs that provide the history of users accessing the database and the database objects accessed|
