Security Policy Administrator permissions

The Security Policy administrator configures the security policies that govern the access rights to accounts and assets, including the requirements for checking out passwords, such as the maximum duration, if password reasons are required, if emergency access is allowed, and so on. This user may not know any details about the assets.

This user configures time restrictions for entitlements and who can request, approve and review access requests.

  • Creates account groups, asset groups, and user groups.
  • Creates entitlements.
  • Configures access request policies.
  • Adds users or user groups to entitlements to authorize those accounts to request passwords.
  • Can assign linked accounts to users for entitlement access policy governance.

Preparing systems for management

Before you add systems to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (Adding an asset), you must ensure they are properly configured.

Generally, to prepare an asset for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords:

  1. Create a functional account (called a "service" account in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords) on the asset and assign it a password.

    Note: To add an asset to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, it must have a service account. For more information, see About service accounts.

  2. Grant the service account sufficient permissions.
  3. Test the service account connectivity.
  4. Configure the security protocol.
  5. For platforms that support SSL server certificate validation, add the server’s signing authority certificate to the Trusted Certificates store in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. For more information, see Trusted Certificates.

The following topics can help you prepare your hosts for management by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords:

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords supports a variety of platforms. For more information, see Supported platforms.

Preparing ACF - Mainframe systems

This applies to both ACF2 - Mainframe and ACF2 - Mainframe LDAP platforms.

To prepare IBM ACF-mainframe systems for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

  1. Create a service account on the asset and assign it a password. The service account must have the SECURITY attribute enabled for ACF2 ChangePassword to work properly.
  2. Grant the service account the privileges required to use the ALTERUSER command on other profiles.
  3. If not already installed, install a telnet server on the z/OS system. If required, secure telnet with SSL.

    Note: Please refer to your IBM z/OS system documentation for details on installing and configuring the telnet server (and SSL).

  4. Test the telnet server using a Windows-based 3270 emulator or on Linux, use the telnet-ssl or x3270 programs to test SSL and non-SSL connections to an z/OS system.
  5. In Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, create the asset and accounts for the z/OS system using password authentication.
About certificate support for the telnet protocol

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically accepts any server certificate that the connection offers and does not verify the trust chain on the telnet certificate. In addition, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not support client certificate selection, so if telnet requires that the client present a certificate that is signed by a recognized authority, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot support that configuration.
