Security Manager Reference
MeadCo Security Manager approves or denies claims for functionality in a context: a web page or a server device.
Security Manager is a freely redistributable code component that is installed with ScriptX and a license file (sxlic.mlf) that is issued by MeadCo to each content publisher.
ScriptX.Add-on or ScriptX.Services for Windows PC
In a web page context with either ScriptX.Add-on or ScriptX.Services for Windows PC, MeadCo Security Manager provides users with reassurance that the facilities of those components and local services will not be abused by 'bad-actors'.
Nothing is "installed" on publisher servers; a server is used simply as file storage for the code installers and sxlic.mlf (your unique publishing license).
ScriptX.Services for On Premise devices or custom implementation of ScriptX Server
In the context of server hosted services, either as ScriptX.Services for On Premise devices or custom implementation of ScriptX Server, MeadCo Security Manager provides the reassurance that the ScriptX Server software is currectly configured and working on the host device.
About the publishing license
sxlic.mlf is your client-side Security Manager publishing license, issued to you in the form of an unique .MLF file of c. 6Kb. Each license has an unique GUID, the revision number will increment with each change or renewal of the license. These details will be provided to you with the license.
Your publishing license will work with every existing and future version of ScriptX. It does not have to be updated when the ScriptX software is updated.
All Security Manager publishing licenses are renewable and valid for one or more years.
The License file and ScriptX.Add-on or ScriptX.Services for Windows PC
For ease of system maintenance it is often preferable to a have single current copy of sxlic.mlf located centrally. The file does not have to reside at a licensed address so long as all your ScriptX-enabled documents are allowed to ‘see’ it.
Your publishing license clearly identifies your organisation and the ‘active’ content you are offering (for example, advanced printing of HTML, printing PDF) in a completely unambiguous way. Except in the case of ‘Silent’ option it is the user who is given the option to accept or decline to enable functionality validated by your license.
