     = Enable Security
    -If you do not enable security in {project-name}, then a client interface to {project-name}
may request a user name and password,
    -but {project-name} ignores the user name and password entered in the client interface,
and the session runs as the database *root* user,
    -`DB__ROOT`, without restrictions. If you want to restrict users, restrict access to certain
users only, or restrict access to an
    -object or operation, then you must enable security, which enforces authentication and
authorization. You can enable security
    -during installation by answering the {project-name} Installer's prompts or after installation
by running the `traf_authentication_setup`
    -script, which enables both authentication and authorization. For more information, see
    -<<enable-security-authentication-setup-script,Authentication Setup Script>>
    +{project-name} supports user authentication with LDAP, integrates in Hadoop's Kerberos
environment and
    +supports authorization through database grant and revoke requests (privileges).
    +If this is an initial installation, both LDAP and Kerberos can be configured by running
{project-name} installer.

    Should we say, "the {project-name} installer"?
