The intended audience for this section is the chief security officer or the security administrator for a WebSphere Commerce site.

Important: These topics only cover WebSphere Commerce security issues that are related to deploying an e-commerce site. Issues relating to vulnerabilities of your operating system are not covered. You should consult your operating system vendor or product information to determine the appropriate measures that you should take to secure your operating system.
