One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions 5.9.0 - Release Notes

System Requirements

Before installing SPS 5.9, ensure that your system meets the following minimum hardware and software requirements.

Supported web browsers and operating systems

Supported browsers: the current version of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or newer. The browser must support TLS-encrypted HTTPS connections, JavaScript, and cookies. Make sure that both JavaScript and cookies are enabled.


Since the official support of Internet Explorer 9 and 10 ended in January, 2016, they are not supported in SPS version 4 F3 and later.


Even though the SPS web interface supports Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge in general, to replay audit trails you need to use Internet Explorer 11, and install the Google WebM Video for Microsoft Internet Explorer plugin. If you cannot install Internet Explorer 11 or another supported browser on your computer, use the the Safeguard Desktop Player application. For details, see Replaying audit trails in your browser in Search (classic) and Safeguard Desktop Player User Guide.


SPS displays a warning message if your browser is not supported or JavaScript is disabled.


The minimum recommended screen resolution for viewing SPS's web interface is 1366 x 768 pixels on a 14-inch widescreen (standard 16:9 ratio) laptop screen. Screen sizes and screen resolutions that are equal to or are above these values will guarantee an optimal display of the web interface.

Supported operating systems: Windows 2008 Server, Windows 7, Windows 2012 Server, Windows 2012 R2 Server, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows 2016, and Linux.

The SPS web interface can be accessed only using TLS encryption and strong cipher algorithms.

Opening the web interface in multiple browser windows or tabs is not supported.

Safeguard Desktop Player system requirements

The Safeguard Desktop Player application supports the following platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows:

    64-bit version of Windows 7 or newer. Install the appropriate driver for your graphic card.

  • Linux:

    RHEL 6, CentOS 6, or newer. The Safeguard Desktop Player application will probably run on other distributions as well that have at least libc6 version 2.12 installed.

Installing the Safeguard Desktop Player application requires about 120MB disk space, and a temporarily used disk space to store the audit trails that are replayed. The size of the temporary files depends on the size of the replayed audit trails.

You can install the Safeguard Desktop Player application with user privileges.

Supported virtual environments for evaluating One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions
