How to Setup and Configure SecurID Apache Module for Integration with Secure Global Desktop (Doc ID 2544346.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 20, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.4 to 5.4 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Historical releases of Secure Global Desktop (SGD) previously bundled RSA's SecurID Authentication Agent software for use with the legacy SecurID Login Authority.  This third party component was removed from the standard installation package of the SGD 5.4 release.

Authentication using RSA's SecurID technology is still supported--SGD Administrators that wish to integrate these two products have several options:

This reference document is intended to assist the SGD Administrator in configuring SGD for third party authentication, using an Apache Module provided by RSA.


 This reference material is intended for SGD Administrators who have installed or upgraded a SGD deployment to version 5.4, and would like to use the Apache Module provided by RSA to authenticate connecting users.

Support Statement: The procedure described within this document outlines recommended steps to download and install 3rd party software from RSA; as such, this document must assume that the customer has previously established a valid relationship with that organization directly, with necessary rights and permission to access the software.   Further, successful integration of these two products requires that the customer's RSA Authentication Manager Server is installed, and operational within the target environment.

Oracle's Desktop Virtualization team cannot assist with access to that 3rd party resource, nor with the install and configuration of SecurID components directly.
