Supported platforms

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords supports a variety of platforms, including custom platforms.

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords tested platforms

The following table lists the platforms and versions that have been tested for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (SPP). Additional assets may be added to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. If you do not see a particular platform listed when adding an asset, use the Other, Other Managed, or Other Linux selection on the Management tab of the Asset dialog. For more information, see Management tab (add asset).

SPP joined to SPS: Sessions platforms

When Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (SPP) is joined with a Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) appliance, platforms are supported that use one of these protocols:

• SPP 2.8 or lower: RDP, SSH

• SPP 2.9 or higher: RDP, SSH, or Telnet

Some platforms may support more than one protocol. For example, a Linux (or Linux variation) platform supports both SSH and Telnet protocols.

For all supported platforms, it is assume that you are applying the latest updates. For unpatched versions of supported platforms, Support will investigate and assist on a case by case basis but it may be necessary for you to upgrade the platform or use SPP's custom platform feature.

Custom platforms

The following example platform scripts are available:

  • Custom HTTP
  • Linux SSH
  • Telnet
  • TN3270 transports are available

For more information, see Custom platforms and Creating a custom platform script.

Sample custom platform scripts and command details are available at the following links available from the Safeguard Custom Platform Home wiki on GitHub:

CAUTION: Example scripts are provided for information only. Updates, error checking, and testing are required before using them in production. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords checks to ensure the values match the type of the property that include a string, boolean, integer, or password (which is called secret in the API scripts). Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot check the validity or system impact of values entered for custom platforms.

Licenses

Hardware appliance

The One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords 3000 Appliance and 2000 Appliance ship with the Privileged Passwords module which requires a valid license to enable functionality.

You must install a valid license. Once the module is installed, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords shows a license state of Licensed and is operational. If the module license is not installed, you have limited functionality. That is, even though you will be able to configure access requests, if a Privileged Passwords module license is not installed, you will not be able to request a password release

Virtual appliance Microsoft Windows licensing

You must license the virtual appliance with a Microsoft Windows license. We recommend using either the MAK or KMS method. Specific questions about licensing should be directed to your Sales Representative. The virtual appliance will not function unless the operating system is properly licensed.

Licensing setup and update

To enter licensing information when you first log in

The first time you log in as the Appliance Administrator, you are prompted to add a licenses. The Success dialog displays when the license is added.

On the virtual appliance, the license is added as part of Initial Setup. For more information, see Setting up the virtual appliance.

To configure reminders for license expiration

To avoid disruptions in the use of Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, the Appliance Administrator must configure the SMTP server, and define email templates for the License Expired and the License Expiring Soon event types. This ensures you will be notified of an approaching expiration date. For more information, see Enabling email notifications.

Users are instructed to contact their Appliance Administrator if they get an "appliance is unlicensed" notification.

As an Appliance Administrator, if you receive a "license expiring" notification, apply a new license.

To update the licensing file

Licensing update is only available using a virtual machine, not via the hardware.
