Potential Security Implications When Sharing Credentials

When you share a credential, that credential becomes available to all other administrators for use with Shavlik Protect service components. For example, if Administrator A creates a shared credential and assigns it to the proxy service, Administrator B is free to assign that same shared credential to other service areas of the program.

Therefore:

  • Only share those credentials that are needed by Shavlik Protect service components.

  • DO NOT share credentials that allow access to secure areas of your organization.
