Which components of the Jira framework are affected by a change to the security guidelines?
The Jira team announced Tuesday it has implemented changes to the JIRA security guidelines, which were issued in June.
The guidelines, first released in July, required organizations to use a password manager, but Jira now recommends that users use a single password manager.
“We are pleased that this update provides security updates for all of the components of JIra that have been identified as potentially vulnerable to unauthorized modification by unauthorized parties,” said Tom Hickey, chief technology officer for Jira.
“If a user is compromised by a malicious party, JIram can be used to quickly and securely remove them from the platform.”
The JIrum developers also said in the announcement that the changes to their security guidelines are effective immediately.
“Jira now provides a single, password-based password manager for the majority of our platforms,” the Jumas developers said.
“This allows us to provide a secure platform for our customers.”
A separate announcement from Jumases developers said Jira has also started using a password management framework that includes a separate password manager called Keychain.
This new framework is being rolled out globally, according to Jumans developers.
“As with all of our new security updates, we strongly recommend that all users who use Jira to manage their credentials always remember the password they use for any sensitive data,” they said.
This security update is not the first for Jumades platform.
In December, the team announced that it was adding a new feature to the service to help administrators protect against identity theft.
In the statement announcing the changes, the Jummases team said: “By enabling Keychain, we’re not only protecting users from identity theft, but we’re also providing an easy-to-use solution for administrators to manage user credentials.”
It added that Keychain “provides a password-less solution for the JUMA platform that offers the same level of security as the existing password management solution.”
