    Caution: Tenable strongly recommends encrypting communication between your on-site scanner and the CyberArk AIM gateway using HTTPS and/or client certificates. For information on securing the connection, refer to the Tenable.io User Guide and the Central Credential Provider Implementation Guide located at cyberark.com (login required).

    Option Description Required

    CyberArk Host

    The IP address or FQDN name for the CyberArk AIM Web Service. This can be the host, or the host with a custom URL added on in a single string.

    yes

    Port

    The port on which the CyberArk API communicates. By default, Tenable.io uses 443.

    yes

    AppId

    The Application ID associated with the CyberArk API connection.

    yes

    Client Certificate The file that contains the PEM certificate used to communicate with the CyberArk host.

    yes

    Client Certificate Private Key The file that contains the PEM private key for the client certificate.

    yes

    Client Certificate Private Key Passphrase The passphrase for the private key, if required.

    yes, if private key requires

    Kerberos Target Authentication

    If enabled, Kerberos authentication is used to log in to the specified Linux or Unix target.

    no

    Key Distribution Center (KDC)

    (Required if Kerberos Target Authentication is enabled.) This host supplies the session tickets for the user.

    yes

    KDC Port

    The port on which the Kerberos authentication API communicates. By default, Tenable.io uses 88.

    no

    KDC Transport

    The KDC uses TCP by default in Linux implementations. For UDP, change this option. If you need to change the KDC Transport value, you may also need to change the port as the KDC UDP uses either port 88 or 750 by default, depending on the implementation.

    no

    Domain

    (Required if Kerberos Target Authentication is enabled.) The domain to which Kerberos Target Authentication belongs, if applicable.

    yes

    Get credential by

    The method with which your CyberArk API credentials are retrieved. Can be Username, Identifier, or Address.

    Note: The frequency of queries for Username is one query per target. The frequency of queries for Identifier is one query per chunk. This feature requires all targets have the same identifier.

    yes
    Username

    (If Get credential by is Username) The username of the CyberArk user to request a password from.

    no
    Domain (If Get credential by is Username) The domain to which the username belongs, if applicable. no
    Safe

    (If Get credential by is either Username, Identifier, Address) The CyberArk safe the credential should be retrieved from.

    no
    Account Name (If Get credential by is Identifier) The unique account name or identifier assigned to the CyberArk API credential. no

    Use SSL

    If enabled, the scanner uses SSL through IIS for secure communications. Enable this option if CyberArk is configured to support SSL through IIS.

    no

    Verify SSL Certificate

    If enabled, the scanner validates the SSL certificate. Enable this option if CyberArk is configured to support SSL through IIS and you want to validate the certificate.

    no

  1. Click Save.

Verification

  1. To verify the integration is working, click the launch button (highlighted below) to initiate an on-demand scan.

  2. Once the scan has completed, select the completed scan and look for Plugin ID 12634, which validates that authentication was successful. If the authentication is not successful, refer to the Debugging CyberArk Issues section of this document.
