Security policies

You can set up a security settings document to manage and deploy execution control lists (ECLs) and Notes® and Internet password settings and synchronization. As these two areas of security are user-specific and are frequently changed by users, you can use a security policy to enforce settings for these areas across the organization, and control the extent to which users can adjust or change these settings.

Domino® policies are a way of distributing administrative settings, standards, and configurations to users, groups, or entire organizations. A policy is a collection of administrative settings that addresses an administrative area, such as security. You then use this document to establish and enforce administrative standards, and to distribute them throughout the organization. In addition, you can easily modify and maintain standards across an organization by simply editing a settings document.
