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.
