Starling

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords can join with the cloud platform One Identity Starling. By joining with One Identity Starling, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords customers can take advantage of companion features from multiple Starling services; such as Starling Two-Factor Authentication and Starling Connect. For more information, see Join Starling.

Join Starling

In order to use the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords features associated with Starling Connect and Starling Two-Factor Authentication, 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 services, see Starling Two-Factor Authentication - Technical Documentation and Starling Connect - Technical Documentation.

Prerequisites

See the Starling Release Notes for currently supported platforms.

In order to use the companion features from Starling services, first configure the following:

  • Register a Starling organization. For more information on Starling, see the One Identity Starling User Guide.

    IMPORTANT: The Starling Two-Factor Authentication service is only available to organizations associated with the United States data center. The Starling Connect service is available to organizations in both the United States and European Union data centers.

  • Download the Starling 2FA app on your mobile phone to use the Approval Anywhere feature.

  • If your company requires the use of a proxy to access the internet, you must configure the web proxy to be used. For more information on configuring a web proxy to be used by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords for outbound web requests to integrated services, see Networking.

After the join

Once Safeguard for Privileged Passwords is joined to Starling, the following Safeguard for Privileged Passwords features are enabled:

Features 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 in to 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.

Feature using Starling Connect
  • Starling Connect Registered Connectors

    This feature integrates your Starling connectors with Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. This allows for the accounts stored in the connectors to be discovered and controlled by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords through the use of partitions which allow for rotating passwords to provide additional security for them. For more information, see Registered Connectors

Syslog

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to define one or more syslog servers to be used for logging Safeguard for Privileged Passwords event messages. Appliance Administrators can specify to send different types of messages to different syslog servers. The syslog client certificate will be used. For more information, see Syslog Client Certificate.

To define and manage the syslog servers, go to Syslog:

  • web client: Navigate to External Integration | Syslog.
  • desktop client: Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | External Integration | Syslog.

The Syslog pane displays the following about each syslog server defined. The desktop client is in a different order and includes some fields that are in the Syslog Events setting in the web client.
