Enhancements...


I'm considering logging a couple of enhancements via rms, but was first
curious about general appetite.

1. Allow Forward Proxy capability for the Sentinel UI.
I've tried
this with NAM, and it kinda works a little, but significant features
fail. I've tried both domain and path based proxies but I suspect there
are issues with hostnames not being re-written properly somewhere
because of where they're buried.
It would also need to cope with SSO (Injection / Form Fill / SAML).
This would allow secured remote access to the console without having to
publish the console publicly (like they did for the 7.2 beta).
This also leads into point 2 below...


2. A mobile UI
Obviously not all desktop functionality would be
required, but the ability to view alerts and the event details related
to the alerts, manage incidents, etc. in a stripped down version.
This would be made available through point 1 above and would be able to
cope with the NetIQ Mobile Access feature now available in NAM, jailing
the Sentinel UI to the mobile app on the phone.
Mobile workforce, instant access to security threats, etc...

Thoughts? Issues?

Re: Enhancements...


I can appreciate the need for #1, but we aren't at that point yet and #2
would be an awesome piece to have.

Good thoughts

Hi guys,

#1: We are well aware of the need for some form of multi-factor auth for
Sentinel and that NAM comes close, but it doesn't quite work (the issues
we've seen are primarily around the Java Webstart piece). As you
probably know, NetIQ recently acquired Authasas, a company that
specifically works on multi-factor authentication techniques so we're
definitely looking in that direction to see what the integration might
look like.

I have a team right now working on a relatively simple replacement for
our current auth model, one that supports the current local/LDAP auth
but can also delegate auth to a remote Identity Provider. I'm aware of a
couple customers using SecureAuth so that is one of our first targets.
In the end, Sentinel would be able to consume Oauth2 tokens so it should
be relatively easy to extend this to other products. If you folks have
other hard requirements here now is definitely the time to tell me about
them.

As for #2, the next release will incorporate an entirely new front-end
UI based on Angular.js and other responsive technologies that will allow
the UI to conform to smaller screen sizes (or tablets or whatever).
Initially this will be just the top-level of your experience - as you
drill down into the details of an alert, say, it will be in the old UI
for the time being - but we'll be replacing the old GWT-based screens
over time. I expect you'll be much, much happier with your mobile
experience right away, and that as we move more and more functionality
into Angular.js you'll be able to do most things on your phone or
tablet.

Helpful?
