Post of the Week: Two-Factor Auth and SSO with BIG-IP

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, lightboard, authentication, rsa, devcentral, access by psilva on January 26th, 2018

In this Lightboard Post of the Week, I answer a question about 2FA and SSO with AD/RSA on BIG-IP by creating a SSO Credential Mapping policy agent in the Visual Policy Editor, that takes the username and password from the logon page, and maps them to variables to be used for SSO services. Special thanks to senthil147@gmail.com for the question and a new 2018 MVP, MrPlastic (Lee Sutcliffe, which I flubbed) for the great answer.

Post of the Week: SSL on a Virtual Server

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, application security, silva, video, lightboard, http, ssl, devcentral, certificate by psilva on December 22nd, 2017

In this Lightboard Post of the Week, I answer a few questions about SSL/https on Virtual Servers. BIG-IP being a default deny, full proxy device, it's important to configure specific ports, like 443, to accept https traffic along with client and server side profiles and include your SSL certificates. We cover things like SAN/SNI certificates but I failed to mention that self-signed certificates are bad anywhere except for testing or on the server side of the connection.

Lightboard Lessons: What is BIG-IQ?

Posted in f5, big-ip, lightboard, devcentral, big-iq by psilva on August 31st, 2017

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up many of the tasks you can do with BIG-IQ, BIG-IQ centralizes management, licensing, monitoring, and analytics for your dispersed BIG-IP infrastructure. If you have more than a few F5 BIG-IP's within your organization, managing devices as separate entities will become an administrative bottleneck and slow application deployments.  Deploying cloud applications, you're potentially managing thousands of systems and having to deal with traditionally monolithic administrative functions is a simple no-go. 

Enter BIG-IQ.
