iSCSI Share Settings
The only Access Control List setting for iSCSI shares is CHAP Authentication.
CHAP provides two levels of security:
- One-way CHAP authentication: Only the remote client (the initiator) needs to provide a password to start a login session with the share (the target).
- Mutual CHAP authentication: Requires that both the client (the initiator) and the share (the target) authenticate each other.
