Launch the Identity Router for Amazon Web Services
Use the identity router image provided by RSA to install the identity router as a virtual appliance in your VMware environment. You can install the virtual appliance image using a VMware administration client such as vSphere, by either connecting to the VMware vCenter Server, or connecting directly to the VMware ESXi host.
Use the identity router Amazon Machine Image (AMI) provided by RSA to launch the identity router as a virtual instance in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment. You configure your Amazon environment and deploy AMIs using the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) web-based interface.
Before you begin
You must be a Super Admin in the Cloud Administration Console.
Follow the AWS documentation provided by Amazon to install the virtual instance using the AMI.
When prompted, specify the following:
The AMI template image provided by RSA.
Determines presets for the virtual instance. The identity router requires a t2.large instance or greater.
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
The section of your Amazon environment where you will deploy the identity router.
A subnetwork within your VPC where you will deploy the identity router. The subnet can be public or private, depending on how resources and users will connect to the identity router.
Auto-assign Public IP
Determines whether Amazon issues dynamic public IP addresses for the identity router, or the IP address is determined by the subnet settings. If your organization manages its own DNS service, RSA recommends allocating a persistent Elastic IP address through AWS, and assigning it to the identity router instance after you complete the instance launch process.
Virtual storage space. The identity router requires 54 GB General Purpose SSD (GP2) storage.
Optional labels that describe this identity router. RSA recommends adding a tag specifying the Fully Qualified Domain Name, which acts as a unique identifier to differentiate this identity router from others in your deployment.
