This feature is only available in NCache Enterprise.
A distributed cache operates in an environment having access to many different users, where any user can change the cache configuration, perform any management operation, or have access to the cache data without any restriction.
The concern of cache security arises when you are dealing with critical data or you do not want everyone to have administrative access rights to your cache server other than the list of authorized users. The cache can be secured in two ways:
NCache security mechanism works with any LDAP-supported Directory Services. All users are authenticated against all LDAP-supported Directory Services using the LDAP Authentication method in NCache. NCache provides you with a security feature with different levels of granularity that you can implement as per your requirements.
NCache provides a customizable security feature for securing distributed cache access. You can prevent any unwanted or unauthorized access to your NCache cluster, and to the data that resides in the cluster by simply configuring NCache security.
Data Encryption in NCache
To ensure that the data transmitted over the network is secure, NCache provides a data encryption mechanism. Data being transmitted over the network between cache servers and your application can be secured by configuring the NCache data encryption mechanism. No code changes are required for NCache security and encryption customizations.
