Authentication agents are software applications that securely pass user authentication requests to and from RSA Authentication Manager. Before an authentication agent can communicate with RSA Authentication Manager, you must deploy the agent.
Install an authentication agent on each machine that you want to protect. See your agent documentation for installation instructions.
Use the Security Console to add a record for the new agent to the internal database. In this step, you can specify whether you are creating a restricted agent. The agent record identifies the agent to RSA Authentication Manager. This process is called registering the agent. For more information, see Add an Authentication Agent.
