Subject Re: Multitenancy and/or encryption?
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2016 20:32:48 GMT
Hey James,

Thanks for the quick answer! On the encryption question -- do you guys
imagine there being any application-level encryption that we should keep in
mind while coding? Or would it be transparent to the application solutions
(ex. database/filesystem/disk-level encryption).

And on the multitenancy part -- I just meant if I gave users access to
future-Metron, would I be able to limit their access to certain objects
(ex. NetID + IP Range) using ACL's or whatever within Metron? Or would I
spin up a hierarchy of Metron instances that mimic the required user
permission tree?
