To configure gateway authentication
Navigate to the Connections page of the traffic (for example to SSH Control > Connections), and select the connection policy to modify.
Select the Require Gateway Authentication on the SPS Web Interface option. This is the option to configure gateway authentication via the web interface of SPS.
Figure 248: <Protocol name> Connections > Require Gateway Authentication on the SPS Web Interface — Configuring gateway authentication
To accept the gateway authentication only from the host that initiated the connection, select Require same IP.
This option has no effect if the clients are behind a device that performs network address translation (NAT). In such cases, use inband gateway authentication instead.
By default, any user can perform gateway authentication for the connections. To allow only members of a specific group authenticate the connections of this connection policy, select Groups, click and enter the name of the group whose members can authenticate the connections. This group must exist on the AAA > Group Management page. For details on creating and managing usergroups, see Managing user rights and usergroups. Repeat this step to add further groups if needed.
For SSH, RDP, Telnet and Citrix ICA connections, you may want to set a usermapping policy in the Usermapping policy field. For details on usermapping policies, see Configuring usermapping policies.
Click . After that, users accessing these connections must perform gateway authentication as described in Performing out-of-band gateway authentication on One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS).
(Optional) To restrict the availability of selected channels of the connection based on the username used for gateway authentication, edit the channel policy used in the connection.
Navigate to the channel policy used in the connection (for example, SSH Control > Channel Policies).
Select Gateway Group, click and enter the name of the user group allowed to use this type of the channel. The user group must correspond to the username used for the gateway authentication. Repeat this step until all permitted groups are listed.
You may list local user lists as defined in Creating and editing user lists, or LDAP groups (for details on accessing LDAP servers from SPS, see Authenticating users to an LDAP server). Note the following behavior of SPS:
If you list multiple groups, members of any of the groups can access the channel.
When listing both a whitelist and blacklist in the Gateway Group section and a username appears on both lists, the user will be able to access the channel.
If a local user list and an LDAP group has the same name and the LDAP server is configured in the connection that uses this channel policy, both the members of the LDAP group and the members of the local user list can access the channel.
(Optional) If you want to provide a limited SPS web interface to your users that can be used only for gateway authentication and 4-eyes authorization, set up a dedicated user-only web login address. For details, see Configuring user and administrator login addresses.
(Optional) You can configure a message for users accessing SPS for out-of-band authentication. The message is displayed when they log in to SPS.
Navigate to Basic Settings > Management > Web gateway authentication.
Select Enable web gateway authentication banner.
Figure 249: Basic Settings > Management > Web gateway authentication — Configuring a banner
Enter the message in the Banner field. You can use the following text formatting options:
== Title == === Subtitle === This is plain text. [http://address.to/ Link text] # First numbered list item. # Second numbered list item. * First bulleted list item. * Second bulleted list item.
(Optional) If your users have sessions to several remote server, or access a server several times a day, performing the gateway authentication for every session can be a nuisance. To permit your users to authenticate on the SPS web interface once, and open sessions without repeating the gateway authentication, select Enable auto-assign and click . Note that the user must leave the browser window (or tab) of SPS open.
