Access control bootstrapping

After Edge Flow Manager (EFM) is secured, all access need to be authenticated and authorized.

Authentication means that EFM can verify the identity of the client or user from credentials, as configured according to the instructions provided in User authentication.

Authorization means that the authenticated user is allowed to perform the requested action on the requested data. Authorization in EFM is driven by local access control policies. In order to grant access control policies to users, you need an initial admin that can set up other user account access. This section provides an overview of that process.
