Identity Manager can use the following to communicate with the SecurID ACE/Server adapter:
Sun Identity Manager Gateway (Windows only)
Telnet (UNIX only)
SSH (UNIX only)
SSHPubKey (UNIX only)
For SSHPubKey connections, the private key must be specified on the Resource Parameters page. The key must include comment lines such as --- BEGIN PRIVATE KEY --- and --- END PRIVATE KEY --. The public key must be placed in the /.ssh/authorized_keys file on the server.
The user specified in the Login User resource parameter (on UNIX) or in the Administrator Login resource parameter (on Windows) must be assigned to an administrative role that has the ability to run user- and token-related tasks.
You can use a test connection to test whether
These commands exist in the administrator user’s path
The administrative user can write to /tmp
The administrative user have rights to run certain commands
A test connection can use different command options than a normal provision run.
The Resource SecurID Administrators report lists all available administrators for the SecurID resource.
