Local System Account

You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to authenticate to a managed SQL Server using a local system account and password. The local system account is a Windows user account on the server that is hosting the SQL database.

NOTE: In order to use this authentication type, you must add both a Windows asset and a SQL Server asset to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

Table 51: Local System Account authentication type properties
Property Description
Service Account

Click Select Account to choose the local system account associated with the SQL Server for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to use for management tasks.

Required

Test Connection

Click this button to verify that Safeguard for Privileged Passwords can log into this asset using the local system account credentials you have provided. For more information, see About Test Connection.

Select to use the Named Pipe when connecting to the asset. Clear this check box to use TCP/IP when connecting to the asset.

Advanced

Open to reveal the following settings:

As Privilege

Specify the Oracle privilege level to use when connecting with the selected Oracle service account, if required. The Oracle SYS account requires the privilege level SYSDBA or SYSOPER. For details, see the Oracle document, About Administrative Accounts and Privileges and SYSDBA and SYSOPER System Privileges.

Instance (Service Name)

Specify the Instance name if you have configured multiple instances of a SQL Server on this asset. If you have configured a default (unnamed) instance of the SQL Server on the host, you need to provide the IP address and port number.

Specify the Service Name if you are configuring an Oracle asset.

Port

Enter the port number to log into the asset.

Required

Connection Timeout

Enter the SQL server connection timeout period.

Default: 20 seconds

Password (local service account)

You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to authenticate to a managed system using a local service account and password.

Note: Some options are not available for all operating systems.

Table 52: Password authentication type properties
Property Description
Distinguished Name

For LDAP platforms, enter the fully qualified distinguished name (FQDN) for the service account.

For example: cn=dev-sa,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com

Service Account Name

Required except for LDAP platforms, which use the Distinguished Name.

Service Account Password

Enter the service account password used to authenticate to this asset.

Limit: 255 characters

Required

Privilege Elevation Command

If required, enter a privilege elevation command (such as sudo). This is used as a prefix for commands that require privileged access on the system and to manage accounts on Unix-based systems; that is, to check and change passwords and to discover accounts.

When adding an asset, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords uses this command to perform Test Connection. For more information, see About Test Connection.

To enable Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to elevate the privileges of the service account, assign the asset to the scope of a partition profile that has the privilege elevation command defined. For more information, see Creating a partition profile.

The privilege elevation command must run non-interactively, that is, without prompting for a password. For more information, see Prepare Unix-based systems.

When an asset requiring an SSH host key does not have one, Check Password will fail. For more information, see Connectivity failures.

Use SSL Encryption

Select this option to enable Safeguard to encrypt communication with this asset. If you do not select this option for a MicrosoftSQL Server that is configured to Force Encryption, Test Connection will use untrusted encryption and succeed with valid credentials. For more information about how Safeguard database servers use SSL, see How do Safeguard for Privileged Passwords database servers use SSL

Verify SSL Certificate

When enabled, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords compares the signing authority of the certificate presented by the asset to the certificates in the Trusted Certificates store every time Safeguard for Privileged Passwords connects to the asset. Trust must be established for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to manage the asset. For Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to verify an SSL certificate, you must add the asset's signing authority certificate to the Trusted Certificates store. Only clear the Verify SSL Certificate option if you do not want to establish trust with the asset’s
