UMS is a DLNA server. Now DLNA is a protocol that doesn't have any real notion of a "user". You don't have to "logon" to your TV for example. This leads to that all renderers get access to the same data. This might not be what you want. For example if you have two folders kidssafe and kidsunsafe you might want restrict the renderers in the kids room to only have access to the kids_safe folder. UMS provides a number of methods to control the access.
