2.18. Accessing and configuring PSM

PSM has a web interface and is configured from a browser. The users of PSM can be authenticated using local, LDAP, or RADIUS databases. The privileges of users are determined by group memberships that can be managed either locally on PSM, or centrally in an LDAP database. Assigning privileges to groups is based on Access Control Lists (ACLs). It is also possible to match groups existing in the LDAP database to a set of PSM privileges. Access control in PSM is very detailed, it is possible to define exactly who can access which parts of the interface and of the stored data.
