Summary

This training provides a comprehensive explanation of the administrative responsibilities associated with the RSA Authentication Manager component of an RSA SecurID Access system and offers hands-on practice in a virtual lab environment

 

Overview

The working principles behind RSA Authentication Manager and RSA SecurID authenticators are discussed, including product architecture, time synchronization, risk-based authentication, managing external Identity Sources and exploring all aspects of an administrative structure. Extensive hands-on labs reinforce the administrative tasks involved in managing a user population and authenticator assignment.

 

Audience
