The WAS administrative console can be used to specify security policies for applications that run in the WAS environment. The WAS administrative console can also specify security policies for other Web resources, based on the entities that are stored in the registry.

Tivoli Access Manager adds the accessGroup object class to the registry. TAM administrators can use the pdadmin utility (available only on the policy server host in the PD.RTE fileset) to create new groups. These new groups are added to the registry as the accessGroup object class.
