Ignition uses the concept of role-based security, which considers that each user can be assigned to various roles. Security policies are then defined in terms of these roles rather than the specific user.
Ignition takes a multi-layered approach to security, via multiple types of Authentication, User Roles and Zones, and action Auditing. These mechanisms can be applied to users accessing a Client or Session, as well as restrict access in the Designer. Ignition can also authenticate against external Federated Identity Providers, fully integrating with 3rd party security solutions.
