In order to design a well secured SAS BI Intelligence platform, an Architect has to think about SAS Metadata and even Host layer security also. SAS is very powerful and flexible to implement any kind of security model for SAS Metadata environment. However in order to implement the Host layer security architects are dependent more on the Host (UNIX/Windows) security model. A secured SAS environment needs a good amount of effort to be invested in order to secure UNIX/Windows host layer also. SAS 9.2 BI Intelligence Platform has taken a big step forward towards reducing the designing and maintenance effort required to secure host layer.
