How to Configure SafeNet Login

Managing online identities and access roles is becoming increasingly difficult for organizations, especially when trying to scale the deployment of cloud and web apps. Added troubles arise when the efforts to manage identities compromise regulatory compliance or user convenience. SafeNet Trusted Access is a solution to all these problems.  

SafeNet Trusted Access is a single sign-on (SSO) solution that offers IdentityasaService (IaaS) with granular access security. All in all, it streamlines cloud identity management, eliminates the hassle of passwords, offers a single pane of glass to view events, and manages correct access to cloud applications from a single console. 

Steps to configure SafeNet Login

SafeNet Login needs to be configured both in the Parallels RAS Console and in the Parallels RDP Client.

Configuring SafeNet Login in the Parallels RAS Console

In the Parallels RAS Console, navigate to the Connection/Multi-factor authentication tab and, in the Provider drop-down list, select SafeNet.

In the TMS Web API URL field, enter the location of the SafeNet API URL and then, in the User Repository field, enter the user repository destination. Click OK to save the values and close the SafeNet Properties dialog.

When configuring multi-factor authentication, exclusion rules can be created to allow some users to be exempt from multi-factor authentication enforcement. These exception rules can be set specifying user and groups, client IP and MAC addresses, or connections to certain Gateways.

Configuring the Parallels RDP Client

Once SafeNet login has been configured, users connecting to the RAS environment will be prompted to enter a four-digit OTP PIN (these digits are chosen by the user and will be required later) and an email address.

Users will receive an email containing all required information to activate the SafeNet Authentication. An example of this mail is shown below.
