Bomgar Verify has the ability to provide a “Migration” path from existing authenication methods.
Two types of “Migration” are supported, existing passwords and existing third party tokens.
Migration of Passwords
To support user’s with existing passwords, the VPN/SSL device is reconfigured to pass all authentication requests to Bomgar Verify server. If the user is not configured upon Bomgar Verify and is a member of the “sepasswordonly” group, the user credentials are checked against the existing LDAP account.
Supported LDAP types are (Microsoft Active Directory, Novell e-Dir, Sun Directory server, Linux Open LDAP)
A group called sepasswordonly must be created upon the directory server.
Users who are required to authenticate with a username and password must be added to the sepasswordonly group.
See section 4 forconfiguration settings
Migration of existing third party Token Server
To support user’s with existing third party Token server, the VPN/SSL device is reconfigured to pass all authentication requests to Bomgar Verify server. If the user is not configured upon Bomgar Verify, the request will then be forwarded to the configured “Token server”. Only the Radius protocol is supported for existing third party token server.
Supported Token servers: any Token server that uses the Radius protocol for authentication.
