You can manage agents in PingAccess. Agents are web server plugins installed on the web server hosting the target application. Agents intercept client requests to protected applications and allow or deny the request to proceed by consulting the policy manager or using cached information.
Agents communicate with the PingAccess policy server through the PingAccess Agent Protocol (PAAP), which defines the possible interactions between agents and the policy server. Agents have identifying names and a shared secret to authenticate with the policy server. Agents do not need to be unique. There can be multiple agents using the same name and secret, and they are all treated equally by the policy server. This is useful in complex deployments where unique agents are difficult to manage. Agents can be assigned as the destination for one or more applications by name.
