One Identity Manager Data Governance Edition Technical Insight Guide

Data Governance Edition uses a Service Connection Point (SCP) to locate the Data Governance service, listening ports for communication between Data Governance components, and network encryption to secure sensitive information.
Data Governance Edition publishes a Service Connection Point (SCP) in Active Directory so the Data Governance configuration wizard and Data Governance agents can locate the Data Governance service. Upon startup, the Data Governance service searches Active Directory in order to verify that the SCP is correct. When the Data Governance configuration wizard or agents start up, they search Active Directory for the SCP objects within their Active Directory forest, in order to retrieve connection information from the Data Governance service such as host name, listening port, deployment name, and other authentication information. The agents use the deployment name in the keywords search so they will only find services with the same user configured DGE deployment name.
The SCP objects are published directly subordinate to the service's computer object in Active Directory. SCP objects can be viewed and updated using Microsoft's ADSI Edit MMC snap-in.
The Data Governance service installs and maintains a single SCP (CN=DataGovernance.Server). The service checks and updates the Active Directory objects each time the service starts up.
