The Symantec Product Authorization Service (VRTSaz) is a common component that provides a centralized access control decision-making service. After the Symantec Product Authorization Service validates user identities, the Authorization Service makes access control decisions. The service determines whether specific users have the authority to perform specific tasks on the specific resources that are protected through authorization.
The Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) is the only part of CommandCentral to use the Authorization Service. HAL uses the Authorization Service to control access to management operations for devices and explorers.
