18.25. Role Mapping

Role mapping is a way of sharing data between secure hosts. A file containing a list of trusted hosts is created, with each host assigned several role mappings. Mapping occurs when you accesses data from one of the hosts. The sender's roles are mapped onto the receiver's roles to allow for authentication and data sharing. Types of roles include user roles, application roles and so forth. This is an optional feature and is not enabled by default.
