Xton Access Manager Product Update 2.3.202109192223

Today we released new update to the Xton Privileged Access Manager software. This update added Dry Run option for Import assets from CSV, KeePass, RDG and PuTTY files and added password spelling option using NATO Phonetic Alphabet.

Added Dry Run option for Import assets from CSV, KeePass, RDG and PuTTY files

The update added Dry Run option when importing objects from CSV, KeePass, PuTTY or Remote Desktop Connection Manager files. The option runs the import process and reports issues as the regular import process without actually creating objects in the system. The option simplifies on-boarding of network assets.

Added password spelling option using NATO Phonetic Alphabet

The update added the option to spell passwords on the screen using NATO Phonetic Alphabet available for Password fields on Record View, Quick View and Edit form when the password is unlocked and visible on the screen (password spelling). Password spelling option simplifies transmitting the password over the phone or retyping the password to the other location to avoid ambiguity with similarly looking letters.

Added the option to override Session Manager configuration for SQL Proxy connections for individual records

The update added the option to override Session Manager configuration for SQL Proxy connections for individual records. The option allows system administrators to choose different proximity groups configuration for records that could be reused by multiple different protocols (ssh, sql, etc) that require different traffic routing.

Use record level field OverrideSessionManager (Type: String, Display Name: Override Session Manager) with the value orap://session-manager-host:port to override default session manager detected from the proximity groups configuration. For example, use the value orap://localhost:4822 to indicate local session manager should be used when connecting to this record using Oracle SQL Proxy protocol but still use default proximity groups configuration for other protocols.

Added the option to query WEB Session Manager version

The update added the option to print the version of the WEB Session Manager for tracking and troubleshooting purposes. To print the version of WEB Session Manager execute the following command from the deployment folder where the application is installed:

  • Windows: .\guacd\bin\guacd -v
  • Linux: ./guac/sbin/guacd -v

To print extended information about WEB Session Manager execute the following command from the deployment folder where the application is installed:

  • Windows: .\guacd\bin\guacd -V
  • Linux: ./guac/sbin/guacd -V
Added the option to specify SSL ciphers for the WEB Session Manager listening port

The update added the option to specify ciphers in openssl format used to encrypt the channel between the WEB GUI and the session managers. To specify the cipher list for Linux deployments use -S option in the session manager service startup script in $XTAM/bin/pamsession such as in the example below and then reload and restart pamsession service:

/opt/xtam/guac/sbin/guacd -f -b 0.0.0.0 -C /opt/xtam/guac/etc/ssl/session.crt -K /opt/xtam/guac/etc/ssl/session.key -S ALL:!RSA

For Windows deployments, edit $XTAM/guacd/etc/guacamole/guacd.conf file to add the following property to [ssl] section:

cipher_suites=ALL:!3DES:!RC4

The filter for selected ciphers should be specified in openssl format described in openssl documentation https://www.openssl.org/docs/man1.1.0/man1/ciphers.html
