SYMP-AG-000430 - Symantec ProxySG providing user authentication intermediary services must conform to Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM)-issued profiles.


Without conforming to FICAM-issued profiles, the information system may not be interoperable with FICAM-authentication protocols, such as SAML 2.0 and OpenID 2.0.

Use of FICAM-issued profiles addresses open identity management standards.

This only applies to components where this is specific to the function of the device or has the concept of a nonorganizational user (e.g., ALG capability that is the front end for an application in a DMZ).

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Configure ProxySG to conform to a FICAM-authentication protocol and configure it to use SAML authentication.

1. Log on to the Web Management Console.
2. Browse to Configuration >> Authentication.
3. Click 'SAML' and configure.
