Document Audience

This document provides an overview of the Osirium PAM components, the steps required to install and upgrade each of the components and additional details on creating a clustered environment.

Overview

Osirium PAM is a privileged user management system that allows you to implement a least-privilege user model when granting user access to devices and device tasks across your infrastructure.

Osirium PAM ensures users never need to know the password of privileged account credentials of devices, enabling secure access and eliminating the risk posed through shared privileged account credentials.

Osirium PAM also provides a comprehensive audit trail, including session recording, allowing you to review and analyse end-to-end accountability of your users access and knowing who did what, when and where. Along with our behaviour analytics reporting feature, user access can be adjusted and improved, ensuring a least-privilege model can be easily implemented.

Components

Component Name Description
PAM Server Main component which drives Osirium PAM. It incorporates the virtual appliance, database, Admin Interface and User Interface (UI).

Admin Interface:
Web based interface for SuperAdmins for the management of Osirium PAM. It allows you to configure and manage users, devices and privileged access as well as monitor, audit and review user access

User Interface:
Browser based interface and access point for users. Provides an access list and allows users to SSO onto devices, execute device tasks and provides access to the Admin interface.

MAP Server
Optional
MAP Servers are an extension of the PAM Server and are used to manage connections to centrally hosted thick management applications and web based applications.
PAM UI Server
Optional
PAM UI Server is a dedicated webserver used to run the PAM UI.

NOTE: From PAM Server v7.2.0 onwards the PAM UI is automatically installed and configured as part of the PAM Server installation, eliminating the need for a separate PAM UI install. However, depending on your deployment model, there may be instances where a separate PAM UI is required.
