Confirm that the following prerequisites are met before deploying the PingIntelligence integration.

  • CA API Gateway Policy Manager - PingIntelligence was developed with and qualified with CA API Gateway 9.4 (contact PingIdentity for other supported releases). Use the included Policy Manager to configure the gateway..
  • PingIntelligence software installation

    PingIntelligence 4.0 software is installed and configured. For installation of PingIntelligence software, refer to the manual or automated deployment guides.

  • Java must be installed on the system from where the bundle is imported into the CA API gateway
  • Verify that ASE is in sideband mode Confirm that ASE is operating in sideband mode by running the following command in the ASE command line:

    /opt/pingidentity/ase/bin/ status
    API Security Enforcer
    status                  : started
    mode                    : sideband
    http/ws                 : port 80
    https/wss               : port 443
    firewall                : enabled
    abs                     : enabled, ssl: enabled
    abs attack              : disabled
    audit                   : enabled
    sideband authentication : disabled
    ase detected attack     : disabled
    attack list memory      : configured 128.00 MB, used 25.60 MB, free 102.40 MB
    If ASE is not in sideband mode, then stop ASE and change the mode by editing the /opt/pingidentity/ase/config/ase.conf file. Set mode as sideband and start ASE.
  • Enable sideband authentication: For a secure communication between CA and ASE, enable sideband authentication by entering the following command in the ASE command line:
    # ./bin/ enable_sideband_authentication -u admin –p
  • Generate sideband authentication token
    A token is required for CA to authenticate with ASE. This token is generated in ASE and configured in the policy XML file. To generate the token in ASE, enter the following command in the ASE command line:
    # ./bin/ -u admin -p admin create_sideband_token
    Save the generated authentication token for further use.
