BlueCat Address Manager

As organizations look to open up access to DNS, DHCP, and IPAM to allow users to provision their own IP and DNS resources, additional security needs to be provided to ensure that any user accessing Address Manager isn't malicious.

Address Manager v8.1.0 and greater support X.509 authentication, enabling customers with existing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to grant access to users based on X.509 client certificates.

To configure X.509 authentication in Address Manager you will perform the following:
  • Define X.509 authenticator(s)
  • Enable X.509 authentication
