Preparing Safeguard for Privileged Sessions for credential management

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords supports managing Safeguard for Privileged Sessions credentials.

Before configuring Safeguard for Privileged Sessions to allow for credential management, the following should be considered:

  • The root and local admin accounts will automatically be added to account discovery results. If a local root account exists, it will be ignored and unmanageable.

  • The root account name will always be considered the Safeguard for Privileged Sessions SSH console account. It can allow both SSH Key and password requests. All other local accounts can only allow password requests.

  • Accounts can be manually added to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords or managed through account discovery.

  • Safeguard for Privileged Sessions provides configurable brute-force attack protection. You may need to adjust the settings to avoid blacklisting a user or the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords IP address.
