Multifactor Auth & Privileged Access - F5 PUA

33 Launches
Solution Overview
Meeting the Federal and DoD Authentication security mandates, like the DISA STIG, is a major challenge in today’s complex security stack. Today, each individual application and admin interface requires user name and password for log in. F5 Privileged User Access (PUA) provides SSO, though a webtop, to all apps and admin interfaces, eliminating the need for individual user name and passwords. This enables the use of strong CAC/PIV multi-factor authentication into all apps and administration interfaces. Eliminating this allows you to meet the difficult DOD and federal cyber scorecard requirements.

Goals & Objectives

The goal of this lab is to acquaint users with how F5 APM using PUA can achieve elevated levels of security when connecting to privileged devices and services.
