LeanXcale database can be configured to start in secure mode in order to provide safe access for users and administrators. This mode provides authentication and authorization methods to guarantee that users are actually who they claim to be and can only access resources they are allowed to.

Regarding authentication, LeanXcale database integrates an LDAP server to provide user/password authentication. It can also be configured to use an existing external LDAP server instead of the packaged one.

For authorization, LeanXcale has a permission based authorization mechanism which guarantees that only users with specific permissions can read or modify database resources.
