Security
 
 
Depending on the application, consider adding a custom access control rule for dacs_sts (e.g., to limit access to a particular host or subnet, or even certain identities).
 

Configuration

The following configuration variables are available:
infocard_sts_password
For managed InfoCards generated with a INFOCARD_STS_AUTH_TYPE[3] of "passwd" and an INFOCARD_STS_PASSWORD_METHOD[4] of "sts", this is the global user password that must be provided. Changing this password affects all managed InfoCard accounts.
