Getting started

Welcome to the Stormshield Data Security Enterprise version 11.0 Advanced configuration guide.

In the documentation, Stormshield Data Security Enterprise is referred to in its short form: SDS Enterprise and Stormshield Data Management Center as: SDMC.

This guide describes the use of configuration files and the Windows registry base to configure SDS Enterprise security policies.

Stormshield Data Security Enterprise policy settings can be configured in several ways:

  • In the SDMC administration console, which can be accessed at https://sds.stormshieldcs.eu/admin. The console allows you to create and configure security policies via a graphical interface that feeds the .json configuration file. For more information, see section Managing security policies in SDMC in the Administration guide.
    Some advanced settings are not available in SDMC, but only in the various configuration files described below.

  • Directly in .json configuration files that contain the large majority of the configuration parameters found in security policies. There is one file per security policy. For more information, refer to the section Configuring a security policy in a .json file.
    All the parameters found in the SDMC administration console can also be configured in the .json file.

  • In an SBox.ini configuration file that contains only some advanced parameters. For further information, refer to the section Configuring advanced settings in the Sbox.ini file.

  • In the Windows registry base for the Stormshield Data Team feature. For further information, refer to the section Configuring advanced settings in the registry base.
