It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator or the partition's delegated administrator to define the rules Safeguard for Privileged Passwords uses to verify SSH keys.
Navigate to Asset Management > Profiles > View SSH Key Profiles > Check SSH Key.
To add an SSH key validation schedule
- Click Add to open the Check SSH Key Settings dialog.
- Enter a Name of up to 50 characters for the rule.
- Enter a Description of up to 255 characters for the rule.
- Browse to select a partition.
Optionally, complete either of these settings:
- Reset SSH Key on Mismatch: Select this option to automatically reset an SSH key passphrase when Safeguard for Privileged Passwords detects the SSH key passphrase in the appliance database differs from the SSH key passphrase on the asset.
Notify Delegated Owners on Mismatch: Select this option to trigger a notification when Safeguard for Privileged Passwords detects an SSH key passphrase mismatch.
NOTE: To send event notifications to a user, you must configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send alerts. For more information, see Configuring alerts. Set up an email template for the Check Mismatch event type for passwords and SSH key passphrases.
- To change the Check SSH Key schedule, open the Schedule tab. The default is Never.
In the Schedule dialog, select Run Every to run the job along per the run details you enter. (If you deselect Run Every, the schedule details are lost.)
Configure the following.
To specify the frequency without start and end times, select from the following controls. If you want to specify start and end times, go to the Use Time Window selection in this section.
Enter a frequency for Run Every. Then, select a time frame:
- Minutes: The job runs per the frequency of minutes you specify. For example, Every 30 Minutes runs the job every half hour over a 24-hour period. It is recommended you do not use the frequency of minutes except in unusual situations, such as testing.
Hours: The job runs per the minute setting you specify. For example, if it is 9 a.m. and you want to run the job every two hours at 15 minutes past the hour starting at 9:15 a.m., select Runs Every 2 Hours @ 15 minutes after the hour.
Days: The job runs on the frequency of days and the time you enter.
For example, Every 2 Days Starting @ 11:59:00 PM runs the job every other evening just before midnight.
Weeks The job runs per the frequency of weeks at the time and on the days you specify.
For example, Every 2 Weeks Starting @ 5:00:00 AM and Repeat on these days with MON, WED, FRI selected runs the job every other week at 5 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Months: The job runs on the frequency of months at the time and on the day you specify.
For example, If you select Every 2 Months Starting @ 1:00:00 AM along with First Saturday of the month, the job will run at 1 a.m. on the first Saturday of every other month.
Select Use Time Windows if you want to enter the Start and End time. You can click Add or Remove to control multiple time restrictions. Each time window must be at least one minute apart and not overlap.
For example, for a job to run every ten minutes every day from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., enter these values:
Enter Every 10 Minutes and Use Time Windows:
- Start 10:00:00 PM and End 11:59:00 PM
Start 12:00:00 AM and End 2:00:00 AM
An entry of Start 10:00:00 PM and End 2:00:00 AM will result in an error as the end time must be after the start time.
If you have selected Days, Weeks, or Months, you will be able to select the number of times for the job to Repeat in the time window you enter.
For a job to run two times every other day at 10:30 am between the hours of 4 a.m. and 8 p.m., enter these values:
For days, enter Every 2 Days and set the Use Time Windows as Start 4:00:00 AM and End 8:00:00 PM and Repeat 2.
- (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time is the default time zone. Select a new time zone, if desired.
If the scheduler is unable to complete a task within the scheduled interval, when it finishes execution of the task, it is rescheduled for the next immediate interval.
- Click OK.
