Rider section inspection

I had some techie tasks and couldn’t get out to take photos of riders inspecting the sections this afternoon… except for these photos of Section 15 at the end the day.

Photo album: tech inspection

I was deployed on other tasks this morning and missed about half the tech inspection. But I still managed to get 3 dozen+ photos, including several of World Champ Toni Bou and many of the crop of U.S. youth riders. See the album or this slideshow:

Factory teams arriving

 TTC grounds TTC campgrounds

From the deck of the TTC lodge, I zoomed in on the area of the grounds where some of the factory teams have already set up. I’ll get more photos later today. My next task is to help get directional signs and banners put up at various points from the freeway to here. See the Directions page for a preview.

All greened up

Things have greened up considerably here at the TTC since I was here a month ago for Trials Training Days. I took these photos of the lodge this morning around 8:30.

The planning intensifies

Catherine Bedley and Dan Brown While I was blogging tonight in the TTC lodge, event organizers Catherine Bedley and Dan Brown were having a logistics and planning meeting, going over the hundreds of details for this weekend’s really big show.

Lists, lists, and more lists!

Site map

Here’s a PDF site map of the Trials Training Center property and the location of the sections.

Network Access control

The Network Access Control system is responsible for storing the organizations access policies and applying them to every request that is submitted. In order to access all devices on the network (including the workstation) and to alter network settings, a unique password is needed. All the passwords used to access devices can be viewed by the admin of the device, but not by other users.

Security Mechanism: An administrator of the network can temporarily disable any number of access operations on devices by marking them as “Restricted”. By executing the proper command, the restricted devices can be disabled and any others can be removed from the network.

Authentication/Authentication Engine

The Authentication/Authentication Engine (AAE) implements the different network authentication methods, including:

Token-based authentication

OATH-based authentication

AES-based authentication

The AAE is a plugin framework built in the cloud by the Easy Secure Module (ESM). While it is completely separate from Nautilus, it is used for user authentication.

Security Mechanism: AAE stores the user authentication information in the SecureID Store and provides it to Nautilus for cross-device use. The AAE configuration is stored in a file in the user home directory. By using one of the Nautilus desktop icons to sign in, the Authenticity is sent to Nautilus.

Password Manager

The Password Manager uses the password manager functionality provided by Nautilus, but allows storing passwords and files with a password manager client as well. It requires administrator privileges to retrieve a password. The password manager can only access files that are owned by the administrator.

Security Mechanism: This particular feature is of the cloud plugin architecture that can be accessed only by administrators.

An external user account is required to use the password manager client feature.

Enforcing your Policies

The policies and policies components can be configured to enforce specific actions for which a user should be able to gain administrator privileges. There are several types of policies and policies configuration:

Content filtering


Access control

Device restriction


Restricted network access

The user profiles, group memberships, and policies are all derived from a common schema that contains information such as the namespace, permissions, and roles. The common schema was created in the content filter module.

Multiple policies can be enabled on the same host, but each policy has access restrictions that are applied to other policies to further restrict which actions are allowed for the user or for which users. It is recommended that users only use a single policy for authentication and secure access control.

Access Control

Access control defines how a user should be allowed to perform certain actions such as viewing the desktop, posting messages, or starting applications. In order to create an access control policy, Nautilus must be configured to allow access to all applications. This common registry configuration can be used to define policies for applications that are available for installation.

Access control also defines the user account group or file system permission setting that should be allowed by a user. This can be a group or file system permission for a particular application that is required to run, and there are services which can also help in this purpose, you can visit this site to find great resources for this.

While only a single policy can be enabled on the same host, multiple policies have access restrictions applied to the same user. Only a single policy is defined on a user account by default. The policy will have an access restriction per to an application that is installed on the host.
