Local security is not for casual use. It should be used to protect data on production servers from unauthorized access by people who have physical access to these production servers.

Do not install local security on a production server without first installing it on a test server to ensure that the usage and implications of local security are clearly understood.

How much security is required in your situation is something you must decide; however, it is expected that in the majority of cases local security is more security than is needed.

Local security was added to OS/2 LAN Manager version 2.0 to meet the specialized, more stringent security needs of what is expected to be a small minority of OS/2 LAN Manager customers. Therefore, we expect that for most OS/2 LAN Manager customers, the additional planning and administration required to run local security will not be necessary.
