The "authentication" comes from NT rights and limitations given to the
Windows account the end user logged in. You use Site Security settings to
define what a user can or cannot do to the Manage Anywhere environment.
Certain tasks (eg. Console acces), if found to be coming from a user logging
into a Windows account not authorized to perform the job, a login box will
appear asking the end user to type in the username, passwordm and the domain
name authorized to perform the Manage Anywhere tasks.

The site security settings are for Manage Anywhere Studio.
We are looking at how to identify the agent before granting
the software distribution to the remote device.

The end device has nodeid (seen in the registry of the device/PC and in the
NodeID fields of the machines table of the database).

This nodeid is generated based on individual GUIDs and would be unique to
each device, so there should not be any additional authentication mechanisms
needed.
