Address Commander is an IP address management (IPAM) solution that allows you to improve workflows, automate common processes, and gain a clear picture of your IP resources. The ability to centralize all IP address management poses security concerns — such as who can access what information — that Address Commander can help you address. You will need to consider how to divide user types and arrange the layout of IP space to ensure data integrity as well as efficiency. This document aims to establish best practices for setting up effective security containers in Address Commander so that you can restrict who views which IP resources on your network. Part 1 will establish the user types and IP layout options, while Part 2 will focus on security implications and use cases.
