9.1 Prerequisites for Using Advanced Authentication with Filr

  • A Filr appliance is installed and configured with an advanced-edition license.

  • Latest versions of NetIQ Advanced Authentication Framework 5.x or 6.x appliance is installed and configured. For more information, see Advanced Authentication 5.x or Advanced Authentication 6.x.

  • All the Filr clients must be up-to-date with the latest patch installed before enabling multi-factor authentication.

    When multi-factor authentication is enabled on a Filr server, users with older versions of the Filr client cannot log into the server and therefore will not receive any system alerts to update the client.

  • A valid SSL certificate that is signed by a well-known certificate authority (CA). Self-signed certificates are not supported.
