In this video, Vlad Langman, L3 Engineering Manager, discusses best practices for upgrading to Guardium 11.
IBM Security Guardium Patch Updates (GPUs) update the subversion of Guardium. It is common practice to install the latest GPU for both code fixes and feature/function enhancements.
In this lab, you upgrade a Central Manager appliance from subversion 11.0 to version 11.1 by first installing the Health Check Patch p9999 and then installing GPU p100.
The correct approach for upgrading IBM Security Guardium depends on multiple factors, which include the version you are upgrading from, the hardware of your system, and any special partitioning requirements you might have. A common way to upgrade Guardium to the latest version is the upgrade patch method. Use an upgrade patch to upgrade all systems in a managed environment. The upgrade patch preserves all data and configurations with the exception of user interface (UI) customizations due to a new UI architecture.
Join the IBM Security Learning Services team for an in-depth tour of the Security Learning Academy, with a focus on IBM Security Guardium course offerings. In this video, you will see how to navigate the platform, search the course catalog, enroll in a course, view your enrollments on your dashboard, create progress reports, and see how Security Learning Academy is integrated with IBM VIP Rewards for Security.
This intermediate level guide discusses the default user roles in Guardium. Students learn the purpose of each role, the applications that the role has access to, and what the default user desktop that is associated with the role looks like.
In this demonstration, you learn how to populate Guardium group members with Active Directory users. You can integrate this group into your Guardium policies like any other group. You also learn how to import Active Directory users with Access Manager so that those users can log in to Guardium.
Active Directory provides central authentication and other services to Microsoft Windows networks. In order to maintain centralized authentication and access controls, organizations that use Active Directory often require applications to use this service. As a Guardium administrator, you can change the Guardium authentication to use Active Directory and import users directory from the Active Directory structure.
In this lab, you change the Guardium authentication to use Active Directory, import Active Directory users via Access Management, and validate that one of the users can log into the Guardium GUI.
Active Directory provides central
authentication and other services to Microsoft Windows networks.
Guardium groups consolidate similar data and uses them in creating
query, policy, and classification definitions. As a Guardium
administrator, you can integrate both these functionalities to
streamline the experience across products.
