Security

Qlik NPrinting leverages internal and external resources to manage access, authentication, authorization, and data governance.

Platform security

All communication between Qlik NPrinting services and web clients use web protocols using Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS uses digital certificates to encrypt information exchanged between services, servers, and clients. Encrypted information flows through tunnels requiring two certificates to secure the connection; a server certificate to identify the correct server and a client certificate to allow the client to communicate with the identified server.

The operating system security system controls access to certificates, storage, memory, and CPU resources. Qlik NPrinting uses these controls to protect the platform by only allowing authorized users and processes access to required resources.

For more information about certificates, see Certificates.

Authentication

Authentication in Qlik NPrinting deployments can be managed by proxy service. Upon verification, Qlik NPrinting transfers the user to the Qlik NPrinting Server or NewsStand. For more information about authentication, see Authentication.

Authorization

Attribute based access control provides a comprehensive framework to govern user capabilities within the platform. Data reduction through section access dynamically manages the data which users view and select in applications.

Document Metadata Service (DMS) integrates fully with the existing Directory Service Provider (for example, Active Directory, other LDAP) where Group Membership has been recorded – this is a mechanism by which QlikView Server can re-use existing enterprise accounts and group structures.
