Remote Identities

Remote Identities enable your organization’s users to authenticate to SSH or Kubernetes resources using their own individual identifier rather than a leased credential.

A Remote Identity is like a username, profile, or alias that is unique to an individual user or service account. When logging in to a server via an SSH client, for example, you typically log in with credentials that are not shared with anyone else. Moreover, your individual activities are written to the resource’s native logs under your username.

A leased credential is shared across multiple users and service accounts. In a strongDM organization that uses the leased credential method of authentication, all users authenticate with the same leased credential in order to access the resources that have been granted to their assigned role(s). Individual activities are written to the organization’s logs.

Leased credentials are still the default way to access SSH or Kubernetes resources, but they are no longer the only way. Now you have the flexibility to authenticate to SSH or Kubernetes resources with either leased credentials or Remote Identities.

The option to authenticate with Remote Identities is available for the following resource types only:

  • SSH (Certificate Based) server
  • AKS cluster
  • AKS (Service Account) cluster
  • Elastic Kubernetes Service cluster
  • Elastic Kubernetes Service (Service Account) cluster
  • Google Kubernetes Engine cluster
  • Kubernetes cluster
  • Kubernetes (Service Account) cluster

Admin UI

The Remote Identities release includes the following changes to the Admin UI:

  • The Settings tab of users and service accounts now includes the optional Remote Identity field. You can enter any string that is not already in use. One Remote Identity is allowed per user.
  • Server and cluster tables have a new Authentication column displaying either Leased Credentials (default) or Remote Identities. These are now filterable values for servers and clusters.
  • When adding an SSH (Certificate Based) server or a Kubernetes cluster, the configuration dialog has a new Authentication property to set either Leased Credential or Remote Identities.
    • When Authentication is set to Remote Identities, the Healthcheck Username field displays. The Healthcheck Username is used to verify strongDM’s connection to the target resource.
  • Activity logs now show the following Remote Identity activities:
    • Remote identity created
    • Remote identity deleted
    • Remote identity updated

CLI

The Remote Identities release adds the following CLI commands:

  • sdm admin remote-identities create
  • sdm admin remote-identities delete
  • sdm admin remote-identities groups
  • sdm admin remote-identities list
  • sdm admin remote-identities update

To the sdm admin servers add ssh-cert and sdm admin clusters Add, Clone, and Update commands, we added the following options:

  • --remote-identity-group-id
  • --remote-identity-group-name
  • --remote-identity-healthcheck-username

In addition, this release adds the ability to see Remote Identity audit data via the following commands:

  • sdm audit ssh
  • sdm audit k8s
  • sdm audit users

The -j flag (for JSON) is supported in all cases.
