Modifying Advanced Settings

Using the advanced settings you can specify the following:

  • Encryption algorithm - use this setting to select the encryption algorithm that is used to encrypt users’ answers to secret questions and other security sensitive information. You can select from two options: Triple DES and AES. By default, Password Manager uses Triple DES algorithm to encrypt data. Note, that users’ answers will be encrypted if the “Store answers using reversible encryption” option is selected in the Q&A Profile settings. Otherwise, the answers will be hashed.
  • Encryption key length - use this setting to select whether a 192-bit or 256-bit encryption key will be used.
  • Attribute for storing Q&A profiles - use this setting to enter the attribute name that will be used for storing Q&A profile data. By default, Password Manager stores Q&A profile data in the comment attribute of each user's account and the configuration data in the comment attribute of a configuration storage account, which is automatically created when installing Password Manager.
  • Caution: If you change encryption settings and the attribute for storing Q&A profiles, the current instance will be excluded from a realm it belongs to and users may lose their Q&A profiles.

    When you change these settings, do the following to keep users’ Q&A profiles:

    • Export the current configuration when saving updated instance settings.
    • Update Q&A profiles using the Migration wizard (upload the exported configuration to the wizard) on the current instance.
    • To replicate new settings and updated Q&A profiles export the updated configuration from the current instance and import the configuration to other instances.

    If you do not use the Migration wizard to update users’ Q&A profile after changing the settings, users will have to re-register with Password Manager.

  • Hashing algorithm - use this setting to select the hashing algorithm that will be used to hash users’ answers to secret questions. The following algorithms are available: MD5 and SHA-256. By default, Password Manager uses SHA-256 hashing algorithm. Password Manager will hash users’ answers if “Store answers using reversible encryption option is not selected in the Q&A Profile settings.

    IMPORTANT: If you change the hashing algorithm, the selected algorithm will be applied to newly created Q&A profiles only. Existing Q&A profiles will be hashed with the previously selected algorithm.

To modify the advanced settings

  1. On the home page of the Administration site, click General Settings|Reinitialization, and expand the Advanced settings section.
  2. From the Encryption algorithm drop-down list, select the encryption algorithm for encrypting users’ answers to secret questions and other security sensitive data.

  4. From the Hashing algorithm drop-down list, select the algorithm that will be used to hash users’ authentication answers.

  5. In the Select the attribute of user’s account in Active Directory in which user’s Questions and Answers profile and Corporate phone will be stored section, provide the following data.
    1. Security questions - Enter the required security question.
    2. Corporate Phone - Enter the mobile number of the user.
    3. Corporate email - Enter the corporate's email id of the user.

Realm Instances

Realm Instances

On the Administration site you can view a list of installed Password Manager instances belonging to one realm. This information is available on the Realm Instances page.

To open the Password Manager Service Instances page, on the Administration site click General Settings. On the General Settings page, click the Realm Instances tab.

For each Service instance the Self-Service site URL is specified. If necessary, you can edit the URL by clicking Edit under the corresponding Service instance. In Realm instances, the Primary instance is in red for easy identification.

All Password Manager Service instances belonging to one realm share the following settings: certificate name, port number, encryption algorithm, encryption key length, hashing algorithm, attribute for storing Q&A profile data, and realm affinity ID. These options are configured when initializing a Password Manager Service instance. To change any of these settings, see Instance Reinitialization .

A Redistributable Secret Management Service (rSMS) user must be created in all the Password Manager realm instances. An rSMS user is automatically created if the imported configuration file has the rSMS account details.

Domain Connections

Domain Connections

This section provides information on creating, modifying, and using domain connections.

Using Domain Connections

On the General Settings|Domain Connections tab of the Administration site, you can view a list of available domain connections.

To register a domain with Password Manager you need to create a connection to the required domain. When adding a domain connection you can select an existing connection or create a new one. It is possible to use the same domain connection in different sections: user and helpdesk scopes, and password policies.

The same domain connection can also be used in different Management Policies.

You can add a domain connection either on the Domain Connections tab or from the User scope, Helpdesk scope, and Password Policies pages.

Note, that when you modify the domain connection on the User scope, Helpdesk scope or Password Policies pages, you can select how you want to apply the updated connection settings: either for the specified section only or everywhere where this domain connection is used. If you choose to update settings for the specified section only, a copy of the domain connection will be created with these settings and will be added to the list of available domain connections.

But when you modify the domain connection on the Domain Connections tab, the updated settings will be automatically applied everywhere where this connection is used.

If you want to remove the domain connection from the list on the Domain Connections tab, you should first remove it from all sections where it is used, and only then remove the domain connection from the list.
