Security Zone

A security zone consists of the following:

  1. A collection of resource services.
  2. In a resource service, one or more data repository objects (database, bucket, or file) and zero or more tag services.
  3. One or more zone administrators, auditors, and audit groups.

Security zone administrators can create and update policies for resources in their security zone. 

All services and resources that are not in a user-created security zone are in a default, unnamed security zone.
