Manage Sessions using the Management and Security Server

The Micro Focus Host Access Management and Security Server is a separately available product that provides an administrator the means to centrally manage, secure, and monitor users’ access to host connections. Management and Security Server features you can use with InfoConnect include the following:

  • Administrative Server

    The Administrative Server is the central component of Host Access Management and Security Server that enables you to define terminal emulation sessions, and then manage and configure secure settings for those sessions. The Administrative WebStation is the interface for the Administrative Server, where you configure and save settings.

  • Metering Server

    Use the Metering Server component to monitor the use of terminal sessions including the ability to track the number of connections and total connection time per user.

  • Security Proxy Add-On

    The Security Proxy acts as a proxy for terminal sessions and provides token-based access control, routing encrypted network traffic to and from user workstations. The Security Proxy Server can be installed on the same server as the Administrative Server or on another system.

  • Terminal ID Manager Add-On

    The Terminal ID Manager enables you to pool terminal IDs, track ID usage, and manage inactivity timeout values for specific users, thus conserving terminal ID resources and significantly reducing operating expenses. The Terminal ID Manager can be installed on the same server as the Administrative Server or on another system using either the automated installer or a manual installation.

  • Automated Sign-On for Mainframe Add-On

    Automated Sign-On for Mainframe enables an administrator to configure a connection to the Digital Certificate Access Server (DCAS) on an IBM z/OS mainframe, and then configure their mainframe sessions so that users can access their entitled sessions using a single login, such as with a smartcard. To add Automated Sign-On for Mainframe, you need to install the activation file and configure settings using the Administrative WebStation. Some configuration is also needed on the mainframe.

NOTE:To manage InfoConnect Desktop sessions you need to install and configure Management and Security Server version 12.2 or later.
