RSA November Release Announcements

Expand or Collapse Authentication Methods

Administrators can now control the appearance of the web authentication prompt, either keeping it collapsed, or expanding the prompt to display other authentication methods. The expanded view provides users easy access to all the available authentication methods. This setting can be controlled from the Company Settings page, under Sessions & Authentication tab, where administrators can select or clear Show more authentication factors by default check box. By default, this setting is cleared.

Allow Users to Reset Expired Passwords

An option to allow users to reset the expired passwords is now available in the Cloud Administration Console. To enable this setting, administrators can edit an identity source and then select Allow users to change password option in the Identity Source Details tab under SSL/TLS Certificates section. The administrators need to click Publish Changes to use this option in My Page. When a user’s password is expired, the user will be prompted to enter a new password upon logging to My Page. The new password must meet all the password policy requirements set by the administrator.

Terminology Changes in the Cloud Authentication Service

In the Cloud Authentication Service, the authentication pages have been updated with the new terminology used throughout the other RSA products to ensure consistency and alignment with the authentication industry.

Note: New user and system events have been added and descriptions for some of the events have been modified. If these descriptions are used for SIEM integrations, they must be modified accordingly. For details on events, see user events and system events.
SecurID Authentication (MFA REST) API Display Names are optional and can only be used for display purposes. For any logic, use MethodID.

FIDO Authenticator Manufacturer Column in All Synchronized Users Report

The All Synchronized Users report has been enhanced with a column for FIDO Authenticator Manufacturer to enable administrators to know the manufacturer details of the authenticators.
