Authenticating Presentation Users

The Presentation Authentication feature in Presentation Manager makes it possible for you to specify the level of security that is required for end users to access presentations from the myAccess Links page. With the Assign Users feature, you can specify who is allowed to access specific presentations; with the Authentication feature, you can specify how those users prove to MCS that they are, in fact, the users who have been assigned to the presentation they are requesting.

Note There is a similar feature in the MCS Security function, which allows you to specify the level of security that is required to access the MCS console, or publish or edit presentations stored on MCS.
