Approving an API key release request

Depending on how the Security Policy Administrator configured the policy, an API key release request will either require approval by one or more Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users, or be auto-approved. Depending on policy configuration, approval can be automatic or require the consent of one or more users which provides closer control over system accounts.

You can revoke a request between the time the requester views it and checks it in.

Any eligible approver can deny an API key release request after it has already been approved or auto-approved. Once disallowed, the requester will no longer have access to the API key, but they are given another opportunity to request that API key again. The requester receives an email notifying them that the request was denied.

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords can be configured to notify you of an API key release request that requires your approval. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

Session request workflow

Authorized users can authorize connections, view active connections, limit access to specific resources, be alerted if connections exceed pre-set time limits, and even close connections.

Typically a session request follows the workflow below:

  1. Request: Users that are designated as an authorized user of an entitlement can request a session for any asset in the scope of that entitlement's policies.
  2. Approve: Depending on how the Security Policy Administrator configured the policy, a session request will either require approval by one or more Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users, or be auto-approved.
  3. Review: The Security Policy Administrator can optionally configure an access request policy to require a review of completed requests for assets in the scope of the policy. In addition, if session recording is enabled in the policy, reviewers can audit the workflow transactions and launch the Desktop Player to replay the session as part of the review process.

About sessions and recordings

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords proxies all sessions to target resources. Users do not have direct access to resources, therefore, the enterprise is protected against viruses, malware or other dangerous items on the user's system. Safeguard can proxy and record Unix/Linux, Windows, network devices, firewalls, routers and more.

NOTE: PuTTY is used to launch the SSH client for SSH session requests and MSTSC is used for RDP session requests. For information on how to setup using PuTTY or MSTSC, see SCALUS.

Important notes
  • Sessions requests are enabled by default. However, if authorized users cannot request sessions, check the Session Requests setting in the web client.

    NOTE: You must have Appliance Administrator permissions to manage the service settings.

  • All session activity (every packet sent and action that takes place on the screen, including mouse movements, clicks, and keystrokes) is recorded and available for play back.
  • If Safeguard for Privileged Passwords detects no activity for 10 minutes during a privileged session, the session is closed.
