PAM to support social media accounts (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter...)

  • 1.  PAM to support social media accounts (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter...)

    Posted 11-21-2017 05:18 AM

    Hi all,

     

    Does PAM support credential management of social media accounts, such as corporate-owned accounts on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc?

     

    If yes, is there any documentation regarding such support and how to configure it?

     

    If not, is there any roadmap or positioning from CA regarding this subject? Other PAM vendors, such as CyberArk have "official" support to manage social media accounts.

     

    Thanks for any insights on this.

     

    Best,

    Welington Strutz.

    Hi Wellington,

     

    We do not "officially support" any social media sites or have any specific options to configure them.

     

    What we do support is Auto-login (also called SSO) using a Web Portal. This will work for MOST websites, but actual compatibility will depend on a few factors on the website. For example, the Web Portal does NOT support NPAPI plugins like JAVA or Flash & some login forms simply don't like the method we use to login. I would suggest attempting Web Portal Auto Logins to the sites you need and opening a support ticket if you run into problems.

     

    Documentation on Web Portal Auto-login:

    Since 2.x & 3.x have different GUI's, the instructions have changed a bit...

    (3.x) Configure Automatic Login to Web Portals - CA Privileged Access Manager - 3.0.2 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    (2.x) Configure Automatic Login to Web Portals - CA Privileged Access Manager - 2.8.3 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    Hope this helps,

    -Christian Lutz

    Has anyone implemented CA PAM to manage social media accounts yet?
