Configuring SNMP subscriptions

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send SNMP traps to your SNMP console when certain events occur.

Note: To download Safeguard for Privileged Passwords MIB-module definitions from your appliance, enter the following URL into your web browser; no authentication is required:

https://<Appliance IP address>/docs/mib/SAFEGUARD-MIB.mib

To configure SNMP subscriptions

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
  2. Click New to open the SNMP subscription configuration dialog.
  3. Provide the following information:
    Network Address

    Enter the IP address or FQDN of the primary SNMP network server.

    Limit: 255 characters

    Required

    UDP Port

    Enter the UDP port number for SNMP traps.

    Default: 162

    Required

    Description

    Enter the description of the SNMP subscriber.

    Limit: 255 characters

    Events

    Browse to select one or more SNMP event types.

    Use the Clear icon to remove an individual event from this list or right-click and select Remove All to clear all events from the list.

    NOTE: The SNMP pane displays the number of events that you select, not the names of the events.

    Version

    Choose the SNMP version: Version 1 or Version 2.

    Default: Version 2.

    Community

    Enter the SNMP community string, such as "public".

    The SNMP community string is like a user ID or password that allows access to a device's statistics, such as a router. A PRTG Network Monitor sends the community string along with all SNMP requests. If the community string is correct, the device responds with the requested information. If the community string is incorrect, the device simply discards the request and does not respond.

Verifying SNMP configuration

Use the Send Test Event link located under the SNMP table on the Settings | External Integration | SNMP pane.

To validate your setup

  1. When configuring your SNMP subscription, on the SNMP dialog add the "test" event to your event subscription.
  2. Back on the SNMP settings pane, select the SNMP configuration from the table, then select Send Test Event.

    Safeguard for Privileged Passwords sends a test event notification to your SNMP console.

Starling

One Identity Starling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a SaaS solution that provides two-factor authentication on a product enabling organizations to quickly and easily verify a user's identity. This service is provided as part of the One Identity Starling cloud platform. In addition Starling offers a hybrid service, One Identity Hybrid, that allows you to take advantage of companion features from multiple Starling services, such as Starling Two-Factor Authentication and Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence.

Joining Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to Starling adds Safeguard to the One Identity Hybrid service allowing you to use features from both the Starling 2FA and Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence services. For more information, see Join Starling.

A video of Safeguard and Starling 2FA and Approval Anywhere can be found on the Support site at One Identity Safeguard Video and Tutorials then scroll to the video Safeguard and Starling 2FA.

Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence

The Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence service collects and evaluates information from data sources, such as Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, to provide you with valuable insights into your users and entitlements. When integrated with Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence allows you to identify Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users and entitlements that are classified as high risk and view the rules and details attributing to that classification.

In order to use Safeguard for Privileged Passwords as a data source module in Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence, you must first add a user to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, with the following properties:

  • Authentication Type: Local or Certificate
  • Permissions: Auditor

Once this Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user is defined, you will enter this user's credentials and Safeguard for Privileged Passwords connection information when adding a new data source module in the Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence service. For more information on configuring a new data source module and the classification rules used to identify high risk users and entitlements, see the One Identity Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence Hosted User Guide.

Join Starling

In order to use Starling 2FA with Safeguard for Privileged Passwords's Approval Anywhere feature or as a secondary authentication provider, you must join Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to Starling. It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to join One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to Starling.

NOTE: In version 2.1 and earlier, you had to specify a Starling API key in order to use Approval Anywhere and Starling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) as a secondary authentication provider. This is no longer necessary when you join Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to Starling. If you previously configured these features, once you join to Starling, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically migrates your previous configurations to use the credential string generated by the join process.

For additional information and documentation regarding the Starling Cloud platform and Starling Two-Factor Authentication, see Starling Two-Factor Authentication - Technical Documentation.

After the join

Once Safeguard for Privileged Passwords is joined to Starling, the following Safeguard for Privileged Passwords features are enabled and can be implemented using Starling Two-Factor Authentication:

  • Secondary authentication

    Safeguard for Privileged Passwords supports two-factor authentication by configuring authentication providers, such as Starling Two-Factor Authentication, which are used to configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords's authentication process such that it prompts for two sources of authentication when users log in to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

    A Starling 2FA authentication provider is automatically added to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords when you join Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to Starling. As an Authorizer or User Administrator, you must configure users to use Starling 2FA as their secondary authentication provider when logging into Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. For more information, see Configuring user for Starling Two-Factor Authentication when logging into Safeguard.

  • Approval Anywhere

    The Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Approval Anywhere feature integrates its access request workflow with Starling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), allowing approvers to receive a notification through an app on their mobile device when an access request is submitted. The approver can then approve (or deny) access requests through their mobile device without needing access to the desktop or web application.

    Approval Anywhere is enabled when you join Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to One Identity Starling. As a Security Policy Administrator, you must define the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users authorized to use Approval Anywhere. For more information, see Adding authorized user for Approval Anywhere.
