IssueAttempting to connect RSA Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service through a proxy server from the Security Console (Home > Configure the connection), fails with the following messages:
 
Failed to register to the Cloud Authentication Service

Connection failed to Cloud Authentication Service


The /opt/rsa/am/server/logs/imsTrace log from the RSA Authentication Manager server shows:

com.rsa.admin.casapimgt.CASConnectionManagerException: Authentication Manager cannot connect to
Cloud Authentication Service. Connection failed.
CauseThis error occurs with the combination of the proxy server using SSL Termination for the connection from RSA Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service and RSA Authentication Manager not trusting the certificate from the proxy server.
ResolutionThere are two ways to resolve this issue:
  • Configure the proxy server to use SSL Passthrough rather than SSL Termination for the connection from RSA Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service, 
           or

  • Import the root certificate from the proxy server into each RSA Authentication Manager instance in the environment that communicates with the Cloud Authentication Service through the proxy. For steps, contact RSA Customer Support.
