    I am new to CA PAM. What is the main working of CA PAM server Control? Why do we require it?

    This forum is for DevTest/CA Service Virtualization. What you are looking for is PAM=Privileged Access Manager. which is not this forum. Here is the link to CA PAM: 


    Melanie_Giuliani - can this be moved to the appropriate forum?

    Hi Shabahz,


    Our Implementation Guide has a good explanation of what PAMSC achieves. You can find the link below.

    Plan Your Enterprise Implementation - CA Privileged Access Manager Server Control - 14.0 - CA Technologies Documentation 


    To explain it further, PAMSC has three primary components: the PAMSC endpoint, UNAB, and Enterprise Management.

    The PAMSC Endpoint: The PAMSC endpoint audits usage on a server and enforces security rules to restrict access to sensitive files/programs. It is a second layer of security on top of OS-level controls.

    Unix Authentication Broker (UNAB): This component will allow for LDAP authentication on Linux/Unix servers.

    Enterprise Management: This is the component that allows for central management of both PAMSC and UNAB endpoints.


    If you decide to use PAMSC, you can integrate it with PAM so when a user logs into a target device with PAMSC on it, they will be audited as the user's login name rather than the target account.

    Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
