Xton Access Manager Product Update 2.3.202103212230
Today we released new update to the Xton Privileged Access Manager software. This update added Assume Role support using AWS STS service to generate temporary credentials in AWS service, added support for HTTPS transport in remote PowerShell script execution.
Added assume role support in AWS STS Temporary key generation
The update adds the option to generate temporary credentials by assuming role using AWS STS service. The option allows to generate a set of temporary security credentials that users can use to access specific AWS resources that they might not normally have access to.
Specify the role to assume in Role ARN field of AWS STS Temporary Access record to enable Assume Role functionality. After the role is specified, trigger AWS STS Assume Role script on the application GUI to generate set of temporary credentials assuming the specified role on record.
Added support for HTTPS transport in remote PowerShell script execution
The update adds support to execute PowerShell scripts on remote Windows endpoints using WinRM protocol over secure HTTPS transport. The update allows integration with Windows assets in the networks with enhanced security.
Two optional record level checkbox fields control the verification of SSL certificate (TrustCertificate) and verification host name match between subject on the certificate and host name on record (TrustHost) to test the configuration when using self-signed certificates.
Added property request option for find and search REST API functions
The update added the option for a caller to specify set of returned properties in rest/folder/listPaged and rest/record/findPaged functions using query parameter E=list where list is comma separated list of attributes to return (E=id,name,description). The option allows to minimize the traffic from the server for targeted requests.
