Safeguard Authentication Services 4.1.3 - Evaluation Guide

One Identity Privileged Access Suite for Unix Introducing One Identity Authentication Services Installing and configuring Authentication Services Getting started with Authentication Services


Authentication Services stores certain preferences and settings in Active Directory. This information is used by Authentication Services clients and management tools so that behavior remains consistent across all platforms and tools. The Preferences window allows you to configure these settings and preferences.


The Licensing section of the Preferences window in the Control Center displays a list of installed license files. You can add and remove license files at any time. The license files are stored in Active Directory and Authentication Services Unix hosts automatically download and apply new license files from Active Directory.

(Refer to Licensing Authentication Services for more information about licensing requirements.)
