IP Security Manager is used to maintain the security rule and exception classification framework that authorizes and prevents unauthorized disclosure of intellectual property (IP) within the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
IP Security Manager enables organizations to classify data properly with defined security rules (based on organization, citizenship, physical location and their combination) and exceptions in an evaluated expression. This classification enables the enforcement filter to protect data from unauthorized disclosure within the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. This classification framework complements the general purpose access controls available with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and implements the description of category-specific rules that must be met by any user trying to access a data item.
IP Security Manager defines and maintains the classification of information items in3DEXPERIENCE platform along with the classification including the associated security rules and exceptions. That classification information is used by the platform option IP Controlled Access to determine whether to authorize or refuse access to the requested data item.
This method of classification and enforcement for data items in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform (internal or by federation) means that a single 3DEXPERIENCE platform instance can manage all relevant product data in the organization’s enterprise and safely share that information according to their organization, nationality or physical location. Without this capability, organizations may be required to protect IP by storing the data in physically separate systems — with all the inconsistency, process delays and extra overhead costs these create.
