include the encrypt/decrypt (export/import) passphrase into the properties file for rest api calls
We were looking to find a way to automate updating passwords for some of our accounts within SEAS utilized in our connection settings. It prompts for a decrypt passphrase that we cannot seem to pass values through automatically via script and we w...
Inactive User Accounts Controls - Administrator and user Accounts
Application parameter settings that do not automatically disable and/or remove user accounts after a specified period of inactivity may result in unauthorized access, modification, destruction, and/or disclosure of confidential information
We have SEAS pointing to an LDAP for authentication. When a user account fails to authenticate via SSH public/private key, the logs show that failure in 'error' mode, but that line does not contain the useraccount that failed to log in. We can onl...
SEAS logging at ERROR level does not provide sufficient information regarding authentication failures, forcing us to keep logging level at DEBUG which uses an extremely high amount of disk space in order to have sufficient log retention. For examp...
We need some method to test a configured SEAS engine before integrating it with the rest of our environment. Currently we can only test it by pointing SSP to the new engine and attempting to log in. This means that we can't test the SEAS config in...
Password security controls for SEAS administrator interfaces using local authentication are not sufficient.
Minimum password length of eight characters can’t be enforced.
Passwords expiration can’t be enforced.
Password complexity settings ar...
The administrative consoles for the Sterling External Authentication Server do not contain inactivity session timeout settings. This is not in compliance with our security procedures that require implementation of automatic system timeouts that en...
BKFS - Centralized administrator User Provisioning for SEAS
User accounts created in LDAP must also be created in the following GUIs: SFG, SSPcm, Control Center. Ability to centralize/ "one time" provisioning for all Sterling software would simplify the system administration.
Allow utility scripts like changepassphrase.sh, SEASCipherConfigTool.sh, seasRestAPI.sh to run in non interactive mode
Currently I'm not able to run scripts like changepassphrase.sh, SEASCipherConfigTool.sh, seasRestAPI.sh in the non interactive mode. There is no option to pass the multiple input passphrases to those scripts. Those scripts will also error out if I...
Enable SEAS to be configured in the UI to allow the cached CRL to be used after the refresh interval has expired. In the current setup, unchecking 'Reject expired CRL' does so, but also fails authentications at the end of the refresh interval.
