Default ECL settings

When you first edit the ECL, it includes the following signatures and access options. By default, the ECL does not allow access to protected operations for active content that is unsigned, or for active content that is signed by a signer who is not listed in the ECL.

Table 1. Default ECL settings

Signature

Applies to

Default access options

-Default-

Formulas and code that contain a signature that is verified by Domino®, but that does not match any entry in the ECL.

For example, if the signer is Dan Misawa/Renovations, but the ECL does not contain this signature, then the ECL uses the -Default- signature to assign access.

None

-No Signature-

Formulas and code that contain an invalid or corrupted signature, are unsigned, or are signed by an identity or organization that cannot be verified by Domino.

For example, if the code is not signed, or is signed by a user unknown to the Domino server, the ECL matches -No Signature-.

None

All except Access to workstation security ECL

You can also add additional users or signature types to the ECL. You could add the hierarchical names of specific users or groups -- for example, Dan Misawa/Sales/East/Renovations. If you create a special certifier to certify the IDs of a group of trusted signers, you could use a wildcard character to name all signers -- for example, */Trusted Signers/Renovations.

The following table describes the access that these users (or signature types) in an ECL would have:

Table 2. Access granted for specified signature types

Signature

Applies to

*/Trusted Signers/Renovations

Formulas and code that have */Trusted Signers/Renovations signature.

For example, if the signer is anyname/Trusted Signers/Renovations -- such as Andy Brunner/Trusted Signers/Renovations or Dan Misawa/Sales/East/Trusted Signers/Renovations -- the ECL uses the */Trusted Signers/Renovations signature to match access.

Dan Misawa/Sales/East/Renovations

Formulas and code that have Dan Misawa/Sales/East/Renovations as the signature.

For example, the signer matches this type only if the ECL contains the Dan Misawa/Sales/East/Renovations signature.
