About Role-Based Access

GigaVUE nodes use role-based access control to manage access to the Gigamon Visibility Platform, providing different groups of users with different analysis needs full access to the packets they need for their tools. 1 shows role-based access in action, with separate sets of tool ports partitioned to different groups of users while different sets of network ports are shared.

1shows an example of role-based access control in action. Different teams have been assigned roles that give them access to different sets of ports. For example, the Security Team has access to network ports N1…N2 and tool ports T1…T3. Because the Security Team is sharing N1…N2 with the Server Team, permissions are used to give each team full control of their tool ports while preventing port parameter changes to the shared network ports.
