Identity Router Virtual Appliance Hardware and Software Requirements for On-Premises Deployments

If you deploy the identity router as an on-premises virtual appliance using VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V, your virtualization environment must meet the minimum software and hardware requirements for successful deployment.

For identity routers deployed in the Amazon cloud, see Amazon Web Services Identity Router Deployment Requirements.

Virtual Appliance Hardware Requirements

Hardware requirements vary for each deployment. Consult with SecurID to determine which hardware profile to use. The identity router image provided by SecurID specifies the standard profile by default.

Hardware Component Standard Profile (Image Default) High Capacity Profile (if recommended by SecurID)
Disk space

Memory 8 GB 16 GB
Virtual CPUs 4 4
Network interface for VMware

One E1000 virtual network adapter *

One E1000 virtual network adapter*
Network interface for Microsoft Hyper-V One synthetic network adapter* One synthetic network adapter*

* Two network adaptors are recommended if using the IDR SSO Agent with an on-premises identity router. If your deployment requires only one network interface, you must delete one.

For VMware deployments with two network interfaces, the identity router supports only the two E1000 virtual network adapters defined in the image. Do not change the default network adapter or add a new virtual network adapter to the virtual appliance.

VMware Software Requirements

You can install the virtual appliance using a VMware administration client such as vSphere, by either connecting to the VMware vCenter Server, or connecting directly to the VMware ESXi host. VMware vCenter Server is not required to deploy the identity router. For VMware host hardware requirements, see the VMware documentation.

Software Component Supported Versions
VMware Platform

VMware ESXi 5.5 to the latest (currently 6.x series)

VMware vSphere Client Any version that works with the supported ESXi deployments

See VMware Product Interoperability Matrices for a list of supported vCenter versions.

Hyper-V Software Requirements

SecurID supports Windows Hyper-V 2012 R2 and 2016. See Virtual Appliance Hardware Requirements for the Hyper-V hardware requirements. See Microsoft documentation for additional hardware requirements.

Identity Router for Hyper-V on Azure

RSA supports Identity Router for Hyper-V on Windows server 2016 and 2019 deployed on Azure. See Microsoft documentation for deploying Windows server on Azure and enabling Hyper-V.
