Security State Template

This template creates a configuration that checks the security state of the remote device. It can be found in the COMPLIANCE CHECK category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the security state of the remote device is unprotected, you can choose between two actions:

  • Denies access to the session based on the security state of the remote device.
  • Displays a message in the session based on the security state of the remote device.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
Security State
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Defines the security status of the remote device.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

REMOTE - IGEL UMS SERVER Equals UMS_SERVER_IP:30001
When using IGEL OS devices, replace UMS_SERVER_IP:30001 with the IP address of your IGEL UMS Server.
Example: 192.168.0.22:30001

REMOTE - IGEL UMS CERT THUMPRINT SHA256 Equals UMS_CERTIFICATE_THUMBPRINT_SHA256
When using IGEL OS devices, replace UMS_CERTIFICATE_THUMBPRINT_SHA256 with your IGEL UMS Server certificate thumprint.
Example: 0d57fdd21474ef7806818a661a5f1d1cb3361a8bb4ccd660dae6930a6a135a56

REMOTE - ELUX SCOUT NAME Equals SCOUT_NAME
When using eLux devices, replace SCOUT_NAME with the name of your eLux Scout Server.
Example: DTLDES01

REMOTE - ELUX SCOUT CERT THUMPRINT SHA256 Equals SCOUT_CERTIFICATE_THUMBPRINT_SHA256
When using eLux devices, replace SCOUT_CERTIFICATE_THUMBPRINT_SHA256 with your eLux Scout Server certificate thumprint.
Example: 0d57fdd21474ef7806818a661a5f1d1cb3361a8bb4ccd660dae6930a6a135a56
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes a notifying action that displays a message to the user about a context status and an enforcement action that actively controls access to the session. By default, only the notifying action is enabled and the enforcement action is disabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
Security State - Conditional Access - Enforcement Denies access to the session based on the security state of the remote device. Deactivated None
Security State - Conditional Access - Notification Displays a message in the session based on the security state of the remote device. Activated None
Note:
  • If both actions have been disabled, the contexts will still be created.
  • If both actions have been activated, the deny access task will take priority over the displaying of the notification message.
