Approving an SSH key release request

Depending on how the Security Policy Administrator configured the policy, an SSH 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 SSH key release request after it has already been approved or auto-approved. Once disallowed, the requester will no longer have access to the SSH key, but they are given another opportunity to request that SSH 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 SSH key release request that requires your approval. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to notify you of an SSH key release request that requires your review. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

(desktop client) To review a completed SSH key release request

  1. From your  Home page, the Reviews widget has these controls:
    1. Click  (expand down) to open the list of pending reviews.
    2. Click  Popout to float the Reviews pane.

      You can then select and drag the pane to any location on the console and resize the window.

    NOTE: You enable or disable the Home page widgets in the  Settings (desktop client) menu.

  2. Open the list of pending reviews and select an account name to see the details of the SSH key release request.
  3. Take the following action on SSH key release requests:

    • Select Workflow to review the transactions that took place in the selected request.
    • Select  Review to complete the review process.

      Optionally, enter a comment of up to 255 characters.

    Once the review is complete, it no longer appears on the Reviews pane.

TIP: If one requester checks in the request and another requester wants to use it, the second requester is unable to check out the SSH key until the original request has been reviewed. However, the Security Policy Administrator can Close a request that has not yet been reviewed. This will bypass the reviewer in the workflow and allow the account to be accessed by another requester.

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.
