Configuring Infranet Controller Authentication Policies (NSM Procedure)

An authentication policy is a set of rules that controls one aspect of access management—whether or not to present a realm’s sign-in page to a user. An authentication policy is part of an authentication realm’s configuration, specifying rules for the Infranet Controller to consider before presenting a sign-in page to a user. If a user meets the requirements specified by the realm's authentication policy, then the Infranet Controller presents the corresponding sign-in page to the user and forwards the user's credentials to the appropriate authentication server. If this server successfully authenticates the user, then the Infranet Controller moves on to the role evaluation process.

To configure an authentication realm policy:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Infranet Controller device for which you want to configure an authentication realm policy.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Administrators > Admin Realms or Users > User Realms.
  4. Add or modify authentication realm policy settings in the Authentication Policies tab for one or more of the access management options.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
