Conditional Access for Country with Fallback Template

This template creates a configuration that checks the country of the remote device including a fallback to the previous known country within a timeout period. It can be found in the GEOLOCATION category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the remote device is not located within an authorized country, you can choose between two actions:

  • Denies access to the session based on the country of the remote device.
  • Displays a message in the session based on the country 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
Country Defines the country in which the remote device is located. Includes a fallback to the previous known country within a timeout period. None
Country Provider Defines the country provider that reports the country of the remote device. None
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
Country - Conditional Access - Enforcement

You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

Example: US

You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

COUNTRY None Of AUTHORIZED_COUNTRY_1,…
Replace AUTHORIZED_COUNTRY_X with your authorized countries using the ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 code.
Example: US
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.
  • Country codes are based on ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 code.
