Connection Profiles and the Pluggable Protocols Architecture store the information that is required to communicate with computers and other network devices using standard network monitoring protocols. The Pluggable Protocols Architecture unifies the configuration of protocols across the Symantec Management Platform. Connection Profiles is a feature of the Symantec Management Platform that is leveraged by other solutions and components in the Symantec Management Platform. It provides the ability to update and add protocols without requiring a wholesale upgrade of all dependent solutions. These protocols can include SNMP, WMI, WSMAN, as well as several others.
Credential Manager provides a secure storage location for user names and passwords. The types of credentials that are stored are defined by the installed management solutions. Access to credentials is controlled using the built-in role-based security of the Symantec Management Platform. When a credential is created, only the creator is granted access. If other users need to perform management operations requiring a credential, they must be assigned rights.
This component is part of the Symantec Management Platform 7.0 SP5. For release notes, see DOC1956.
