Authentication Manager includes an administrative user interface called the Security Console.

The following figure shows the Home page of the Security Console.

You use the Security Console for most day-to-day administrative activities, and for some setup and configuration tasks. For example, you use the Security Console to:

  • Add and manage users and user groups

  • Add and manage administrators

  • Assign and manage RSA SecurID tokens

  • Enable and disable users for risk-based authentication or on-demand authentication

  • Add and manage security policies

  • Add and manage authentication agents

  • Designate which network resources you want to protect

  • Connect Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service.

  • Deploy an embedded identity router.

During Authentication Manager Quick Setup, you define the User ID and password for the Security Console Super Admin account. The Super Admin permissions mean that this account can perform all tasks within Authentication Manager.

You also specify the initial User ID and password for the RSA Operations Console during Quick Setup. If you change the User ID or password for either the Security Console or the Operations Console in the future, the User ID and password for the other Console remains unchanged. These are separate accounts.
