One Identity Safeguard 2.5 - User Guide

System requirements

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords has two graphical user interfaces that allow you to manage access requests, approvals and reviews for your managed accounts and systems:

  • The Windows desktop client consists of an end-user view and administrator view.
  • The web client is functionally similar to the desktop client end-user view.

Ensure that your system meets the minimum hardware and software requirements for these clients.

NOTE: If a Safeguard Sessions Appliance is joined to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, session recording is handled via Safeguard for Privileged Session.

Desktop client system requirements

The desktop client is a native Windows application suitable for use on end-user machines. You install the desktop client by means of an MSI package which you can download from the appliance web client portal. You do not need administrator privileges to install One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

NOTE: When you install the Windows desktop client, these additional components are installed which are used by the embedded sessions module:

  • Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Desktop Player: Used to play back a recorded session.
  • Safeguard for Privileged Passwords PuTTY: Used to launch an SSH client if PuTTY is not available on the machine.

Product licensing

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords is made up of a core set of features, such as the UI and Web Services layers, and a number of modules. The One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords 2000 Appliance ships with the following modules, each requiring a valid license to enable functionality:

  • Privileged Passwords
  • Privileged Sessions

You must install a valid license for each Safeguard for Privileged Passwords module to operate. More specifically, if any module is installed, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will show a license state of Licensed and is operational. However, depending on which models are licensed, you will see limited functionality. That is, even though you will be able to configure access requests:

  • If a Privileged Passwords module license is not installed, you will not be able to request a password release.
  • If a Privileged Sessions module license is not installed, you will not be able to initiate a session access request.

As a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user, if you get an "appliance is unlicensed" notification, contact your Appliance Administrator.
