What is the Embargo plugin?

The embargo plugin allows you to put CMS documents, assets and images under embargo, that is, it adds a flag that sets the documents in a confidential state. No one has access to a document under embargo unless he belongs to the group that set the embargo flag. Groups can be given the embargo privilege by adding them to the embargo security domain. Thus, new users and new groups can be added and enabled for embargo operations. These groups don't see each other's embargo content.
