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: https://www.ca.com/content/dam/ca/us/files/data-sheet/ca-privileged-access-manager-server-control.pdf
Melanie_Giuliani - can this be moved to the appropriate forum?
It's been moved. Thanks!
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.

To some extent it got resolved, Thanks!
Can I get some best practises to be followed while implementing fresh CA PAM?
