Configuring after installation
When initially installed, BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is configured for immediate use. This default configuration uses the internal data store as an authentication source. This configuration is suitable for demonstrations, proof-of-concept deployments, testing, and other small deployment scenarios. However, for a large-scale system, you should configure the use of an external user repository for authentication, such as an LDAP server.
The following topics provide information and instructions associated with configuration methods used with BMC Atrium Single Sign-On:
- Using AR Server for authentication
- Using Active Directory for authentication
- Using CAC for authentication
- Using Kerberos for authentication
- Using LDAP for authentication
- Using RSA SecurID for authentication
- Using SAMLv2 for authentication
- Using CA certificates
- Using an external LDAP data store
- Configuring FIPS-140 mode
To help with the configuration of BMC Atrium Single Sign-On, predefined authentication chains are provided using LDAP, RSA SecurID, and other methods. These predefined authentication chains allow you to:
- Configure an authentication module specifically for your deployment environment.
- Quickly configure your system.
- Create more complex chains by modifying the predefined chains.
