CyberArk AIM Integration/Connector

As part of security's best practices, it is mandatory that all applications have a connector with CyberArk to retrieve passwords from functional users, so it isn't allowed to storage static passwords in the local servers/Properties files from applications.

My ask is for the application to support CyberArk integration in order to be compliant with information security policies.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

It will be used to connect B2Bi with Cyberark to retrieve DB's functional user password in order to be compliant with company's policies.

    I find the same need as our company also uses CyberArk, and it would be beneficial to be able to have our admin be able to use their privileged account in place of having to use the normal windows account or a local account. This way we would comply with the FSA and other government requirements we are bound to as a contractor. We manage student loans.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.


    We have evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time due to other priorities. We have allowed the use of secret management in our certified container releases.

    https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/b2b-integrator/6.1.0?topic=container-adding-secrets

    Will continue to keep an eye on this space.

    In 12 months, you will receive a notification that you can resubmit this request for consideration.
