The Policies configuration window (in "Settings > Security > Policies") encompasses essential settings that govern the organizational sharing, authentication strategies, password policies, login messages, and banner appearance within the OpenCTI platform.

Platform main organization

Allow to set a main organization for the entire platform. Users belonging to the main organization enjoy unrestricted access to all data stored in the platform. In contrast, users affiliated with other organizations will only have visibility into data explicitly shared with them.

Numerous repercussions linked to the activation of this feature

This feature has implications for the entire platform and must be fully understood before being used. For example, it's mandatory to have organizations set up for each user, otherwise they won't be able to log in. It is also advisable to include connector's users in the platform main organization to avoid import problems.

Authentication strategies

The authentication strategies section provides insights into the configured authentication methods. Additionally, an "Enforce Two-Factor Authentication" button is available, allowing administrators to mandate 2FA activation for users, enhancing overall account security.

Please see the Authentication section for further details on available authentication strategies.

Maximum marking definitions shareable

This configuration allows to define, for each type of marking definitions, until which level we allow to share data externally.

For now this max marking definitions is used only for Public dashboard.

For example in the capture below, for the type of marking TLP, only data with a marking definition with a level equal or below GREEN will be shareable through Public Dashboard. And no data with marking definition statement will be shared at all.
