            Thanks Trace

             

            By trade I am not a server/network educated administrator (my degree is Computer Information Systems) so I would like an intermediate to advanced session on Tableau Server security surrounding credentialing for [almost] dummies.

            Where are they stored, how are they stored (e.g. type of encryption), what is stored (OpenID Connect, OAuth, embedded password(s) for data source refreshes, etc.), how safe is it, what's up with asset keys and server token & encryption keys, etc.  Something that goes beyond what's in the admin. manual.

             

            Enterprise/IT security get nervous when they hear how easy it is for Tableau to connect to data sources by business users.  Us admins need to be able to reassure them and managers that everything is okay.  So not only a good understanding but also how to explain it from a 30,000 foot view (managers) and in-the-weeds view (IT security team).  Simple, visual "charts" or flow diagrams as hand-outs would be nice
