Change password

If you are a local user or an administrator, you can change your password for the web interface using the User menu > Change password option.

To change the password for SPS

  1. Navigate to User menu > Change password.

    Figure 41: User menu > Change password — Changing the password

  2. Enter your current password in the Current password field.

  3. Create a new, strong password and enter it in the New password field.

    NOTE: One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) accepts passwords that are not longer than 150 characters. Letters A-Z, a-z, numbers 0-9, the space character, as well as the following special characters can be used: !"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<>=?@[]\^-`{}_|

    NOTE: If possible, use a random password generator.

    To create a strong password:

    • Use special characters

    • Use long passwords

    • Mix uppercase and lowercase letters

    For strong passwords, do not use:

    • Personal information in the passwords

    • Sequential letters or numbers

    • The word password as the password

    • Keyboard paths (for example, qwerty)

  4. Enter your new password again in the Confirm new password field.

  5. Click Save.

Audit keystore

To replay encrypted audit trails in your browser and to view encrypted screenshots, upload the necessary private keys to your audit keystore. In the audit keystore, only private keys are stored.

NOTE: Previously, the audit keystore was used to store certificates as well as private keys. From SPS version 6.10 and onwards, you must upload the certificates to Basic settings > Local services > Indexer service. For more information on how to add certificates, see Configuring the internal indexer.

Only RSA keys (in PEM-encoded X.509 certificates) can be uploaded to the private keystore.

One Identity recommends using 2048-bit RSA keys (or stronger).

NOTE: Certificates are used as a container and delivery mechanism. For encryption and decryption, only the keys are used.

Use every keypair or certificate only for one purpose. Do not reuse cryptographic keys or certificates (for example, do not use the certificate of the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) webserver to encrypt audit trails, or the same keypair for signing and encrypting data).

To manage your audit keystore, see the following sections:

Adding the first private key to your audit keystore

To replay encrypted audit trails in your browser and to view encrypted screenshots, upload the necessary private keys to your audit keystore. In the audit keystore, only private keys are stored.

For more information on the supported key format and the certificates that correspond to the private keys, see Audit keystore.

NOTE: The private keys are stored locally, in your browser.

To add the first key to your audit keystore

  1. Navigate to User menu > Audit keystore.

    Figure 42: User Menu > Audit keystore > — Empty audit keystore

    If you want to open an encrypted audit trail or screenshot from the Search interface, but you have not added the corresponding private keys yet to your audit keystore, a dialog will take you to the Audit Keystore option.

  2. Click Add new key.

    Figure 43: User Menu > Audit keystore > Add new key — Add new key

    1. In the Name field, enter a name for the key.

    2. Click Browse key, select the file containing the key in PEM format, and click Open.

      Alternatively, you can also copy-paste or drag your key into the Key content field.

    3. (Optional) If you add a private key that is encrypted, an additional field, the Key password field is displayed. In the Key password field, enter the password for the encrypted key.

    4. Click Add key.

  3. In the Create master password dialog, add a master password.

    Figure 44: User Menu > Audit keystore > Add new key — Add a master password

    The private key is stored in your audit keystore that is protected by the master password that you created.

  4. (Optional) To lock your audit keystore, click Lock keystore.

    If you lock your audit keystore, you protect your private keys from unauthorized use. Your private keys can be used to decrypt content only if you unlock your audit keystore.

Adding further private keys to your audit keystore

This section describes how to add new private keys to your audit keystore.

NOTE: The private keys are stored locally, in your browser.

To add further keys to your audit keystore

  1. Navigate to User menu > Audit keystore.

  2. Click Unlock private keystore.

    Figure 45: User Menu > Audit keystore > Unlock private keystore — Enter the master password

    Enter your master password and click Unlock keystore.

    The audit keystore is unlocked.

    If you forgot your master password, see section Unlocking your audit keystore.

  3. Click Add new key.

    Figure 46: User Menu > Audit keystore > Add new key — Add new key

    1. In the Name field, enter a name for the key.

    2. Click Browse key, select the file containing the key in PEM format, and click Open.

      Alternatively, you can also copy-paste or drag your key into the Key content field.

    3. (Optional) If you add a private key that is encrypted, an additional field, the Key password field is displayed. In the Key password field, enter the password for the encrypted key.

    4. Click Add key.

    The private key is stored in your audit keystore that is protected by the master password that you created.

  4. (Optional) To lock your audit keystore, click Lock keystore.

    If you lock your audit keystore, you protect your private keys from unauthorized use. Your private keys can be used to decrypt content only if you unlock your audit keystore.
