It only makes sense in the full context, because this part of the
sentence describes further the "ausgetüftelten Mechanismen"
(elaborate/subtle mechanisms/functionality).

"Software, _die_ auf andere Komponenten zugreift" would be "Software
which accesses other components", but alas, that is not a sensible
translation of the original text.

Not sure I got to the bottom of the problem here. Those are things I do
more or less intuitively.
