Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Managing User Authentication

Authentication is the process of verifying a user’s identity to ensure that the individual really is who he or she claims to be. (Authentication differs from authorization: it verifies identity, while authorization specifies access rights.) This section describes how to reference external authentication servers.

To manage user authentication, you must first define one or more external authentication servers in AMC, and then set up realms that reference those authentication servers. These are the realms that users will log in to. For information on realms, see Using Realms and Communities. You can also configure a local authentication repository on the appliance for testing, as described in Configuring Local User Storage.
