Barracuda Load Balancer ADC

How to Configure the RSA Authentication Manager

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda Load Balancer ADC can be configured as a RADIUS client to the RSA SecurID Server System, comprised of the RSA Authentication Manager and the Radius Server.

To configure the RSA Authentication Manager Server, complete the following steps:

  1. Configure the RADIUS protocol settings
  2. Add the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC as an Agent Host
  3. Import SecurID Tokens
  4. Add Users to the RSA Authentication Manager and Assign Tokens

Step 1: Configure the RADIUS Protocol Settings

  1. Before configuring the RADIUS protocol, ensure the RADIUS server is up and running on the RSA Authentication Manager Server System. To check:
    1. Go to Start > Programs > RSA Security and select RSA Authentication Manager Control Panel.
    2. Select Start & Stop RSA Auth Mgr Services in the tree on the left pane. The Status of RSA RADIUS Server must be Running. If not, click Start RADIUS to bring it up.
  2. On the RSA Authentication Manager Server System, go to Start > Programs > RSA Security and select RSA Authentication Manager Host Mode. Select the RADIUS menu, and select Manage RADIUS Server.
  3. When the RSA RADIUS window appears, select RADIUS Clients in the tree on the left pane.
  4. Click Add. The Add RADIUS Client window appears.

  5. Specify values for the following fields:
    • Name – Enter the hostname for the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC.
    • Description – Optional.
    • IP Address – Enter the IP address for the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC.
    • Shared Secret – Type the secret key. You need to configure the same Shared Secret on the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC in ACCESS CONTROL > Authentication Services > RADIUS.
    • Make/Model – Select Juniper-ERX.
  6. Click OK to save your settings.

Step 2: Add the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC as an Agent Host

  1. On the RSA Authentication Manager Server System, go to Start > Programs > RSA Security and select RSA Authentication Manager Host Mode.
  2. Select the Agent Host menu, and select Add Agent Host. The Add Agent Host window appears.

  3. Specify values for the following fields:
    • NameEnter the hostname for the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC.
    • Network AddressEnter the IP address for the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC.
    • Agent TypeSelect Standard Agent.
    • Encryption TypeSelect DES or SDI encryption.
    • Select Open to All Locally Known Users and Requires Name Lock.
  4. Click User Activations to assign users to the Agent host.

  5. Click OK. You have added the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC as an Agent Host on the RSA Authentication Manager.

Step 3: Import SecurID Tokens

  1. On the RSA Authentication Manager Server System, go to Start > Programs > RSA Security and select RSA Authentication Manager Host Mode.
  2. From the Token menu, select Import Tokens.
  3. Navigate to the token XML file provided by RSA and click Open to import the tokens.
  4. The Import Status window appears displaying the number of tokens imported.

Step 4: Add Users to the RSA Authentication Manager and Assign Tokens

On the RSA Authentication Manager Server System, go to Start > Programs > RSA Security and select RSA Authentication Manager Host Mode.

  1. From the User menu, select Add User.

  2. The Add User window appears. Specify values for the following fields:
    • First and Last Name – Enter a user's first and last name.
    • Default Login – Enter user's default username.
  3. Users on the RSA Server can be authenticated in two ways: Token Mode or Passcode Mode (default). In Token Mode, users authenticate using the Tokencode currently generated by the RSA SecurID authenticator. In Passcode Mode, users authenticate using a Passcode (Personal Identification Number (PIN) followed by the Tokencode).

    The code generated by the RSA SecurID authenticator is known as the Tokencode. The Tokencode changes continuously at a specified interval (typically every 60 seconds).

    The user's Passcode is the combination of the user’s PIN and the user's current Tokencode.


    A PIN can be generated:

    • If Allowed to Create a PIN or Required to Create a PIN is NOT selected, the system generates the PIN and gives it to the user.
    • If Allowed to Create a PIN is selected, the user can choose to create a PIN or have the system generate the PIN.The user is offered a system generated pin, and if declined, is prompted to enter a PIN.
    • If Required to Create a PIN is selected, the user must enter a PIN and is prompted to do so when logging in.
  4. Select Allowed to Create a PIN or Required to Create a PIN.
  5. Select Assign Token. Click Yes to confirm. The Select Token window appears.
    • To automatically assign a token, select the method by which you want to sort the token using Sorted by in the Auto Select section. Click Unassigned Token, and then click OK.
    • To manually select the token, click Select Token from List. In the Select Token window, select the serial number for the token to assign, and click OK.

  6. Give the user the serial number of the assigned token.

The RSA Authentication Manager configuration is now complete.

Next Step

Now that you have configured the RSA Authentication Manager to operate in conjunction with the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC, you now need to configure the service supported by RSA Authentication on the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC:
