A restricted agent allows only members of one or more specified groups to access protected resources. For example, if you create a restricted agent to provide access to personnel data and allow only members of the human resources group to authenticate on this agent, only members of the human resources group can access personnel data. You can further restrict access by limiting authentication to a specified a time span.
