Welcome to the Caché Security Tutorial!

Caché security provides a simple, robust, flexible, and unified security architecture. This architecture provides all of the following benefits:

  • It offers a strong, consistent, and high performance security infrastructure for applications.

  • It makes it easy for developers to build security features into applications.

  • It places a minimal burden on performance and operations.

  • It ensures that Caché can operate as part of a secure environment.

This tutorial consists of three independent parts that can be completed in any order.

  1. Read Authentication to learn about authentication in Caché security.

  2. Read Securing Applications to learn about application security in Caché security.

  3. Read Authorization to learn about authorization in Caché security.


For in-depth discussion of all aspects of Caché security, read the Caché Security Administration Guide.

This tutorial assumes that you have installed Caché with minimal security.
