Security, credentials, and encryption
To safeguard sensitive data and provide a secure environment for the Robotic Automation solutions that you create, Pega Robotic Automation includes encryption, assisted sign-on, credential management, and other security-related features.
Pega Robotic Automation integrates with three security credential providers.
- a general client credential provider
- Credential usage by application and type
To enhance security, you need credentials to authenticate access with Pega Robot Manager, Windows, and applications throughout the Pega Robotic Automation process.
- Using the Security Token Service
Use the Pega Robotic Automation Security Token Service (STS) as a minimal version of Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) for authenticating Pega Robot Studio and attended Pega Robot Runtime installations with Pega Robot Manager.
- Setting up a relying party in AD FS
Use Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) with your Pega Robot Manager and Pega Robot Runtime implementations to implement a claims-based authorization model for providing security and implementing a federated identity. With these features, you can implement single sign-on access to systems and applications across organizational boundaries.
