Prepare RACF - Mainframe systems

This applies to both RACF - Mainframe and RACF - Mainframe LDAP platforms.

To prepare IBM RACF-mainframe systems for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

  1. Create a service account on the asset and assign it a password.
  2. Grant the service account the privileges required to use the ALTERUSER command on other profiles.
  3. If not already installed, install a Telnet server on the z/OS system. If required, secure Telnet with SSL.

    Note: Please refer to your IBM z/OS system documentation for details on installing and configuring the Telnet server (and SSL).

  4. Test the Telnet server using a Windows-based 3270 emulator or on Linux, use the telnet-ssl or x3270 programs to test SSL and non-SSL connections to an z/OS system.
  5. In Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, create the asset and accounts for the z/OS system using password authentication.
About certificate support for the TELNET protocol

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically accepts any server certificate that the connection offers and does not verify the trust chain on the TELNET certificate. In addition, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not support client certificate selection so if TELNET requires that the client present a certificate that is signed by a recognized authority, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot support that configuration.

Prepare SAP HANA

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords makes an SSL connection to SAP HANA using a TCP port between 30015 and 39915, depending on the SAP system number (also known as the "instance number").

To configure SAP HANA for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

  1. Create a service account and assign it a password.

    Note: This service account must have permissions for remote connections and permissions to change passwords. Consult your SAP security guide for the appropriate settings for your organization.

  2. Verify that you can log in with the service account.

    Note: In SAP, when you create a new account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, you will be prompted to set a new password.

  3. In Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, create the asset and accounts for the SAP asset type using password authentication. You must specify the SAP Client ID number as well as the Port used by the SAP instance.

    Note: When you create an account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to set the account password or reset the password. Use the Reset Password option to reset the password for this account. If you use the Set Password option and enter the same password used in SAP, the password check in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will fail.

Prepare SAP Netweaver Application Servers

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords makes an SSL connection to the SAP Application Server using a TCP port between 3300 and 3399, depending on the SAP system number (also known as the "instance number").

Note: You can have multiple instances of SAP running on a server, each using a different network port in the range 3300-3399. The last two digits of the port are called the system number (or instance number). Also, when you assign a password to the account, the account is not usable until you log in and change the password from the admin-assigned value.

Note: If a privileged user for the asset is of Dialog User or Communication Data type, assign RFC authorization for the RFCPING function module for that user. This allows the user to execute its functions remotely, such as changing the password.

To configure a SAP Netweaver Application Server for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

  1. Create a service account and assign it a password.

    Note: This service account must have permissions for remote connections and permissions to change passwords. For example, S_A.SYSTEM or SAP_ALL authorization profiles will work, but may have more permissions than are necessary. Consult your SAP security guide for the appropriate settings for your organization.

  2. Verify that you can log in with the service account.

    Note: In SAP, when you create a new account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, you will be prompted to set a new password.

  3. In Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, create the asset and accounts for the SAP asset type using password authentication. You must specify the SAP Client ID number as well as the Port used by the SAP instance.

    Note: When you create an account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, Safeguard allows you to set the account password or reset the password. Use the Reset Password option to reset the password for this account. If you use the Set Password option and enter the same password used in SAP, the password check in Safeguard will fail.
