Advanced Security Features

Methods to setup authorization within your Controller & Registry.
Advanced security features are currently only available for our Enterprise Tier licenses.
You must have at least one node with a Enterprise or higher license joined to the Controller for these features to work.
Authentication can be enabled in your Controller configuration.

There are three different authentication methods available:

Token AuthenticationToken based auth tokens & Root token access to Anka Controller dashboard (and API).
Certificate AuthenticationCertificate based access to the Controller and Registry. API requests, Node joining, and anka registry commands all require a valid certificate.
OpenId (SSO) AuthenticationSimilar to Certificate authentication, but using your existing OpenID certified user directory.
