This topic introduces the way in which licensing of appliances and services is implemented in Security Analytics. The entitlement capability leverages RSA Download Central (https://download.rsasecurity.com/) as the mechanism for entitlement delivery.
Entitlements Created and Available to Customer.
After a customer order is processed, the entitlements (licenses) become available in Download Central. The entitlements are tied to an individual account.
Register Security Analytics Server on Download Central and Map Entitlements to the Local License Server (LLS).
Synchronize the Server and Download Mapped Entitlements.
After either synchronization method, entitlements that were mapped to the Local License Server on the Security Analytics appliance are synchronized, but the entitlements have not been used in any way. For example, if a customer had purchased 10 Decoders and 10 Concentrators, 10 of 10 Decoder entitlements and 10 of 10 Concentrator entitlements would be available on the Security Analytics Server.
Note: FlexNet Operations-On Demand (FNO-OD) is the license server in the cloud on DLC. URL is rsasecurity.subscribenet.com. The customer's firewall must allow communications between this URL (whatever it resolves to when using lookup or whois) and the Security Analytics IP address.
