Hi Team,


Trust you are doing well.

I need some help in order to formulate a solution for our client.  I am new to RSA products , however below is my query :


We need to integrate Fortinet VPN with RSA Secure ID for VPN users.


The infrastructure already has RSA Authentication manager which is used by end users to to access VPN using hardware token.


Now, as RSA has this new more capable product , RSA Identity Router , and I understand that it is a DMZ component which also has a RADIUS Server built in it.


So now, the VPN client would communicate to RSA Identity Router using RADIUS Protocol [ instead of RSA Authn Manager ].

I wanted to learn , how the RSA Identity Router would communicate with RSA Authentication Manager and how RSA Identity Router would communicate with RSA Cloud Authentication Service . Is the cloud Authn Service needed in this solution ?


Also, in one of the RSA document it was mentioned that RSA identity router would help in initial authentication , so does this mean this RSA Identity router which is in DMZ would communicate to my User Directory ,or am I missing a link here ?


Please provide some inputs , I have go through RSA links but unable to understand the folw between VPN client --> RSA identity Router --> Cloud Auth Service--> RSA Identity Router --> RSA Auth Manager.
