This release includes the following improvements:

  • RSA improved integration options for customers with SAML-based applications who cannot use the SAML Authentication Context attribute to assign an access policy based on a condition such as the user group and/or resource being accessed. These customers now have increased flexibility when assigning policies by configuring multiple service provider (SP) connections, each with its own unique identifier. For more information, see Add a Service Provider.
  • Customer administrators can now securely login to the Cloud Administration Console through federation by extending their identity provider (IdP) infrastructure. Administrators who are using a common access card (CAC) and personal identity verification (PIV) can continue to use the Federal IdP infrastructure to perform a federated login to the Cloud Administration Console. For instructions, see Configure Session and Authentication Method Settings.

Note: To strengthen the overall security of RSA SecurID Access, RSA is rolling out significant improvements that affect all identity routers and the RSA SecurID Authenticate app (iOS and Android). See this advisory for information on these improvements.
