System Integrations

This category contains integration scenarios that use IBM Data Security products.

System Integrations Courses:

Integrating Guardium with Active Directory

Active Directory provides central authentication and other services to Microsoft Windows networks. Organizations that use Active Directory for centralized authentication usually require that all applications integrate with it, so users can be centrally managed across the enterprise.

Guardium integrates with Active Directory in two ways:

  • Populate a Guardium group with Active Directory users and integrate into your security policies
  • Authenticate Guardium users with Active Directory

In this course, you learn how to integrate Guardium with Active Directory.

Protecting sensitive data from privileged users

This self-paced learning content represents an integration scenario that uses IBM Privileged Identify Manager (PIM), IBM Guardium, IBM Network Protection (XGS), IBM QRadar, and IBM Directory Integrator (IDI). The course includes three videos that depict a database administrator interacting with the system. Watch the videos in the following order:

1)     Testing Initial PIM and Guardium Setup – This video shows the basic functionality of PIM and Guardium without implementing integration between them.

2)     Testing PIM and Guardium Integration – This video shows the benefits of integrating PIM and Guardium. There is no direct integration path between the two products. QRadar and IDI are used to bridge integration gaps between PIM and Guardium.

3)     Testing a Complete Integration Solution– This video shows a fully integrated security solution. It includes the XGS appliance that terminates any existing connection from the database administrator workstation to the database server.

This course also includes an Integration Guide that documents the configuration steps necessary to integrate the products. It also includes the IDI.zip file that contains the custom files, including developed IDI assembly lines, necessary to successfully implement this integration scenario.

Guardium and Resilient integration: Email Connector

Overview

In this video, you will see how to set up IBM Guardium email alerts in an IBM Resilient incident response workflow using the Resilient Email Connector.

Integrating IBM Guardium and IBM Identity Governance and Intelligence to support the GDPR initiative on structured data

This learning module demonstrates the integration of IBM Guardium and IBM IGI products to support the GDPR compliance initiative on structure data. The solution provides a custom developed AssemblyLine that runs in IBM Directory Integrator (IDI), and an IBM Identity Governance and Intelligence (IGI) Custom Adapter that requires IBM Directory Server and IDI to run.

The integration goal is to identify GDPR sensitive data using a provided sample database using IBM Guardium. Guardium then exports a report that contains users who have access to tables with GDPR relevant data. Then, the IGI Custom Adapter imports these reports into IGI for further compliance and access management.

The course provides a lab environment where the integration can be tested and demonstrated.

Also, if you do not have time to run the lab, you can review the videos that demonstrate all steps in the lab.

The additional learning section provides a custom AssemblyLine and a custom IGI adapter as-is with no IBM support. You can provide feedback to the Security Learning Academy if you have any issues with the code.
