Gateway Security

Gateways provide secure information access to let users retrieve and view documents in their native formats from repositories located anywhere. Each gateway uses the native security model of the repository it represents. To access a repository through a gateway, users must first provide credentials to the native security model—for example, if users want to access information from a Documentum repository, they must provide user ID and password information for Documentum. Only then can they search or retrieve documents from the Documentum repository.
