RSA Version/Condition: 7.3 P5
IssueWhat are the supported platforms for Adaptive Authentication (on Premise) version 7.3 P5?

Operating Systems 

RSA Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) 7.3 P5 supports the following operating systems:
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, and 2016.

Note: Some versions of Microsoft Windows have a vulnerability in HTTP.sys that could allow remote code execution. For more information about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-034.

RSA recommends that, if you use one of the affected operating systems, you apply the patch that is released by Microsoft. For more information about the patch, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 3042553.
• IBM AIX 6.1, 7.1 and 7.2
• Solaris/SPARC 10 and Solaris 11.3
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) AS/ES 5.0, AS/ES 6.0, 7.2, and 7.3.

Application Servers

RSA Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) 7.3 P5 supports the following application servers:
• Apache Tomcat 7.0, 8.0, and 8.5.

Note: Because of issues in the Tomcat 7.0.54 and 7.0.65 builds, RSA recommends that you install Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) on a later build than 7.0.65.

Note: An issue in Tomcat 8 (see Bug 56838 in the Apache Software Foundation bug system) may result in performance degradation as compared with Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) on Tomcat 7. To mitigate the issue, RSA recommends that you allocate additional CPU time for the webserver. When deploying web applications on Tomcat 8, to add JDBC data sources in the server.xml file, use the maxTotal property instead of the maxActive property and the maxWaitMillis property instead of the maxWait property.

• IBM WebSphere 8.0, 8.5, and 8.5.5.
• Oracle WebLogic 10.3.4–10.3.6, 12c, 12.1.3 and

Note: On Installing WebLogic 12.1.3 on RHEL 7.2, a warning is displayed. This is a benign warning message with no functional impact and should be ignored.

• Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4 and 7.1
Note: There is a known performance issue on JBoss 6.4. For a workaround, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.


RSA Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) 7.3 P5 supports the following databases:
• Oracle Database 10g, 11g R2, and 12c.

Note: RSA certifies Oracle Database 12c for a noncontainer database (non-CDB) on a hardware or virtual environment.
          RSA does not certify Oracle Database 12c for multitenant architecture, that is, container databases (CDBs) and pluggable databases (PDBs) in a cloud environment.

• Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, and 2016


RSA Adaptive Authentication (On-Premise) 7.3 P5 supports the following VMware versions:
• VMware ESXi 4.1, 5.0, and 5.1
• VMware ESXi 5.5

Note: If you are running application servers and databases that are supported by Adaptive Authentication and that are certified by the vendors on the operating system and VMware version that you are running, RSA supports the configuration.
