WS J WBEM Server 4

The WS J WBEM Server is a standards-based Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) management infrastructure that enables remote discovery and secure management of a system. The J WBEM Server is a pure JavaTM implementation. The J WBEM Server handles Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) requests from WBEM Clients using CIM-XML and/or WS-Management. The J WBEM Server defines management information using the Common Information Model (CIM). The J WBEM Server includes all infrastructure and infrastructure Management Profiles needed to support Management Initiatives, such as CDM (Common Diagnostic Model), DASH (Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware), SMASH (Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware) and SMI (Storage Management Initiative).

Features

Feature Description
Security

Authentication – The J WBEM Server supports the Simple Identity management profile. Authentication can be local (accounts), third party (user contact) or custom.

  • Local authentication uses the built in jwbemserver security plugin and allows the creation of accounts (username, password, …). An account must exist before a user can be authenticated.
  • Third party uses the local system native security, such as Windows or PAM (for *nix platforms). A user contact must be configured with the appropriate user name before the user is authenticated (using third party)
  • Custom – an implementation can build a custom security plugin.

Authorization – The J WBEM Server supports the Role Based Authorization management profile. Users are assigned to Role(s) and Roles are assigned Privileges. Users are then only authorized access to the privileges for the Role(s) they are assigned.

Mutual Authentication – The J WBEM Server supports Mutual Authentication for both Client Protocols and Indications.

Provider Authentication – The J WBEM Server supports Provider Authentication by allowing only signed jar files to be loaded.
