Conditional Access Template

This template creates a configuration that checks if the remote device is compliant with work from home policies. It can be found in the WORK FROM HOME category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the remote device is not compliant with work from home policies, you can choose between two actions:

  • Denies access to the session if the external remoting device is not compliant.
  • Displays a message in the session if the external remoting device is not compliant.

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
Access Mode
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Defines if the remote device is internal or external to the corporate network.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

REMOTE - REMOTING CLIENT OUTBOUND DNS Equals *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389
When using Microsoft RDP remoting protocol, replace *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389 with your remoting hosts dns suffix.
Example: *.demo.devicetrust.local:3389

REMOTE - REMOTING CLIENT OUTBOUND DNS Not Equals *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389
When using Microsoft RDP remoting protocol, replace *.REMOTING_HOST_DNS_HERE:3389 with your remoting hosts dns suffix.
Example: *.demo.devicetrust.local:3389
Country Defines the country in which the remote device is located. None
Country Provider Defines the country provider that reports the country of the remote device. None
Detected Home Office Defines the detected home office of the users remote device. None
deviceTRUST Client Defines the availability of the deviceTRUST Client Extension on the remote device. None
Override Defines if the session user is member of the override AD group. You can add one or more user groups from your Microsoft Active Directory (AD) to exclude group members from actions.
Remote Controlled Defines if the remote device is remote controlled. None
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
Validated Home Office Defines the validated home office of the users remote device. None
Virtualized Defines if the remote device is virtualized. None
Wi-Fi Security Mode Defines if the remote device is connected to a secure Wi-Fi network. 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 two enforcement actions 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
Compliance Check - Conditional Access - Enforcement
 
 
 
 
Denies access to the session if the external remoting device is not compliant.
 
 
 
 
Deactivated
 
 
 
 
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
Compliance Check - Conditional Access - Notification
 
 
 
 
Displays a message in the session if the external remoting device is not compliant.
 
 
 
 
Activated
 
 
 
 
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
Home Office Validation - Conditional Access - Enforcement Validates the home office context and controls session access for external remoting devices. Deactivated 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.
  • Country codes are based on ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 code.
