You deploy the identity router as a virtual appliance in your environment, which must meet the minimum software and hardware requirements for successful deployment.


Virtual Appliance Hardware Requirements

Hardware requirements vary for each deployment. Consult with RSA to determine which hardware profile to use. The identity router image provided by RSA specifies the standard profile by default.

Hardware Component Standard Profile (Image Default) High Capacity Profile (if recommended by RSA)
Disk space 14 GB 14 GB
Memory 8 GB 16 GB
Virtual CPUs 4 4
Network interface for VMware

Two E1000 virtual network adapters

Network interface for Microsoft Hyper-VTwo synthetic network adaptersTwo synthetic network adapters

Note:  For VMware, the identity router supports only the two E1000 virtual network adapters defined in the image. Do not change the default network adapter or add a new virtual network adapter to the virtual appliance.


VMware Software Requirements

You can install the virtual appliance using a VMware administration client such as vSphere, by either connecting to the VMware vCenter Server, or connecting directly to the VMware ESXi host. VMware vCenter Server is not required to deploy the identity router. For VMware host hardware requirements, see the VMware documentation.

Software Component Supported Versions
VMware Platform  

VMware ESXi 5.5 to the latest (currently 6.x series)

VMware vSphere Client Any version that works with the supported ESXi deployments

See VMware Product Interoperability Matrices for a list of supported vCenter versions.

Hyper-V Software Requirements

RSA SecurID Access supports Windows Hyper-V 2012 R2. See Virtual Appliance Hardware Requirements for the Hyper-V hardware requirements. See Microsoft documentation for additional hardware requirements.
