|Applies To||RSA Product Set: RSA SecurID Access|
RSA Product/Service Type: Cloud Authentication Service, Identity Router, Authentication Manager
|Issue||The RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Service Setup and Configuration Guide refers to the RSA SecurID Access Solution Architecture Workbook, where you should complete the Solution Diagram Worksheet for your deployment. The Workbook is a tabbed spreadsheet file that should be completed as an important first step before configuring your RSA SecurID Access deployment. It is a quick and easy method to plan the correct Cloud, Identity Router, Authentication Manager, DNS, firewall and other configuration changes that must be made to successfully deploy RSA SecurID Access. |
|Tasks||Read Chapter 3: Completing the RSA SecurID Access Solution Architecture Workbook of the RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Service Planning Guide. It explains how you can download the Workbook and how to complete it. If you have engaged RSA Professional Services or an RSA Partner to deploy RSA SecurID Access, they will work with you to complete the Workbook. Otherwise, contact RSA Support if you have any questions.|
The Workbook is a spreadsheet with several tabs. The first tab entitled Start Here contains a flowchart that you can use to determine which of the Solution Diagram Worksheet tabs should be completed for your deployment.
Clicking on one of the blue oval diagram labels in the flowchart will take you to the corresponding spreadsheet tab as shown below:
When you have selected the correct Solution Diagram Worksheet tab for your deployment, complete only the yellow cells on the tab. Each yellow cell will turn white when you have entered a value into it. Do not change any other cell of the worksheet. The output cells listed under Summary at the bottom of the page will be generated automatically with the correct configuration settings. This information should be given to your network administrators to configure DNS, firewalls and other infrastructure components.
Note that you should complete exactly one tab in one Workbook per deployment. Most RSA customers will have two RSA SecurID Access deployments - a Dev (development/test) deployment and a Prod (production) deployment. One tab in a separate copy of the Workbook should be completed for each of your deployments.
|Resolution||After your deployment has been successfully configured and tested, the Workbook for it should be saved.|
On an on-going basis, the Workbook for each of your deployments should be maintained in a secure place as documentation of the deployment, and modified whenever your network and your RSA SecurID Access deployment changes.
