IssueThis article details version compatibility between RSA Archer SecOps, the RSA Archer Platform and the RSA NetWitness Platform.

RSA introduced SAIM in RSA Archer SecOps 1.2, which is used in the RSA NetWitness Platform (formerly RSA Security Analytics) to populate incidents in the RSA Archer Suite. See the glossary in the resolution section below for further details.

In version 11.x of the RSA NetWitness Platform, we only support traffic from the RSA NetWitness Platform to the RSA Archer Suite and no longer for the opposite direction. RSA will continue to use the SA IM endpoint for that part of the traffic. However, data in the RabbitMQ queue im.saim_incident_queue is no longer processed by the RSA NetWitness Platform.

RCFRSA Connector Framework. It is a Java-based program to facilitate various plugins.
AIMS PluginsA plug-in module within RCF. It listens to syslog traffic and populates Alert information to the RSA Archer Suite.
ACI PluginsA plug-in module within RCF. It pulls Device records from the RSA Archer Suite and stored it as CSV. It also acts as a Web server for RSA NetWitness Live to retrieve the CSV.
RSA SecOps PluginsSimilar to AIMS plugins, with the added capability to process ESA alerts from the RSA NetWitness Platform. (RCF 2.7)
EM PluginsSimilar to ACI plugins.
SAIM ServiceIt includes an instance of RabbitMQ server. It communicates to the RabbitMQ server on the RSA NetWitness Platform using AMQP with SSL. There are 2 modes of integration, Full mode and Mixed mode. Full mode populates all incidents from the RSA NetWitness Platform Incident Management module to the RSA Archer Suite. Mixed mode allows for incident triage within SA, as well as populate to Archer. It also allows the RSA NetWitness Platform to create remediation tasks and populate to the RSA Archer Suite.
