Security policies

A CMM security policy is a set of security-related characteristics that define a particular level of protection from security exposures. The CMM security policies include hardware-related communication-protocol controls and account-related access controls.

The CMM enforces the chosen security policy for all Lenovo Flex System chassis resources. The CMM offers two levels of security policy: Legacy and Secure. Security policies are not customizable, but you can modify the user account policies that the security policies access (see User account policies for information).

An administrator or a user with administrative privileges can use the CMM CLI or web interface to change the security policy settings.

Important: If the security policy settings are changed after the compute nodes are up and running, the security policy status will remain in the Pending state until the compute nodes in the chassis have been restarted.
