Configuring IF-MAP Session Export Policy on the Infranet Controller (NSM Procedure)

Session-export policies determine how users are identified on the IF-MAP server when their session is published through IF-MAP. The session-export policy sets the IF-MAP identity.

To configure a session-export policy:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Infranet Controller for which you want to configure a session-export policy.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select System > IF–MAP Federation > Session-Export Policies.
  4. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 34.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.

You must create corresponding session-import policies that allow IF-MAP client Infranet Controllers that are connected to an Infranet Enforcer in front of protected resources to collect IF-MAP data from the IF-MAP server.
