RadiantOne VDS 7.1.5 Integration notes for CA SiteMinder r12.52
Version 2.0

By creating a single access point, a federated identity service enables SiteMinder to access identities from across
the infrastructure, so you can extend the schemas of underlying data sources with application-specific attributes,
without touching the stores themselves. This allows you to quickly add new serviceseven ones with specific
attributes not already contained in your data sourcesand extend them to new populations, all without having to
change SiteMinder policies.
RadiantOne Virtual Directory Server (VDS) is the main component of the federated identity service.

VDS in Your SiteMinder Deployment:

Integrates identities to create a single account, including a unified policy profile for each user.
Establishes and maintains correlations between disparate accounts.
Offers a high-performance, high-availability LDAP V.3 directory service thats scalable.
Makes all identity information available in real-time.
Builds a flexible infrastructure that can be re-used across any IdM or related initiative.

System Requirements
RadiantOne VDS is based on Java technologies and Radiant Logic currently provides installers containing all the
pre-requisites (except the Flash plug-in used by administration interfaces) for Windows and Linux. The Flash plugin does not necessarily need to be installed on the server but on the administrative clients.
Here are more details on the supported platforms as of July 2013:

Version 2.0

Configuring SiteMinder to Leverage VDS as a User Directory


It is assumed that RadiantOne is already installed. RadiantOne is typically installed on a dedicated server and is
usually not running on the same server as the SiteMinder Policy Store.
RadiantOne VDS provides an LDAP or LDAPS interface that you can use to connect SiteMinder to VDS. You can
follow the user directory configuration instructions in the Policy Server Configuration Guide to point SiteMinder to
VDS. The configuration steps are similar to CA directory or other LDAP directories. (Look for the page Configure
CA Directory User Directory Connections).
Here are some high level steps for SiteMinder r12.5, r12.51, and r12.52:

1.

Launch the SiteMinder Admin UI.

2.

Select Infrastructure, Directories, User Directory.

3.

Click Create User Directory, and then create an LDAP based user directory based on the SiteMinder
configuration guide.
Below is an example of SiteMinder r12.52 configuration:

Configuring SiteMinder to use RadiantOne VDS as a Policy Store


RadiantOne VDS can function as a policy store. A single directory instance can function as:

Policy Store/Key Store


Gather Directory Server Information

Gather Directory Server Information


Configuring an LDAP directory server as a policy store or upgrading an existing policy store requires specific
directory server information. Gather the following information before beginning. You can use the Policy Store
Worksheets to record your values.
Host Information - fully qualified host name or the IP Address of the directory server.
Port Information specifies a non-standard port.
Administrative DN Specifies the LDAP User name of a user who has privilege to create, read, modify, and delete
objects in the LDAP tree underneath the policy store root object.
Administrative Password specifies the password for the Administrative DN.
Policy Store root DN specifies the distinguished name of the node in the LDAP tree where policy store objects are
to be defined.
SSL client certificate specifies the pathname of the directory where the SSL client certificate database file resides.

Configure the Policy Store


The steps required to configure RadiantOne as the SiteMinder Policy Store are summarized below.
1.

Extend the VDS Schema

2.

Create the Storage in VDS

3.

Point the Policy Server to theVDS

4.

Set the CA SiteMinder superuser password

5.

Import the policy store data definitions

6.

Import the default policy store objects

7.

Prepare for the Administrative UI registration

Extend the VDS Schema


First, modify the VDS schema to support the SiteMinder Policy Store objects and attributes.
1.

On the RadiantOne machine, navigate to <RLI_HOME>\vds_server\schema_extension.

2.

Copy ldapschema_11.ldif.

3.

Navigate to <RLI_HOME>\vds_server\conf\ and paste the schema file here.

4.

Rename the ldapschema_11.ldif file to ldapschema_<2 digit number greater than the existing file
names>.ldif e.g.: (ldapschema_99.ldif).

5.

Restart the VDS.

Create the Storage in VDS


1.

In the VDS Control Panel, Directory tab, Configuration sub-tab, right-click on Root Naming Contexts and
create a new naming context named: dc=policystore and choose HDAP Store as the type.

Note: all the attributes are indexed be default when you use HDAP Store.
2.

Import the Policy Store Data Definitions


Importing the policy store data definitions defines the type of objects that can be created and stored in the policy
store.
From a command-line, on the SiteMinder policy store server, execute the following (change the paths to match
your policy server installation if needed):
"c:\Program Files (x86)\CA\siteminder\bin\XPSDDInstall.exe" "C:\Program Files
(x86)\CA\siteminder\xps\dd\SmMaster.xdd" vT

Import the Default Policy Store Objects


Importing the default policy store objects configures the policy store for use with the Administrative UI and Policy
Server.
From a command-line, execute the following (change the paths to match your policy server installation if needed):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\siteminder\bin\XPSImport.exe" "C:\Program Files
(x86)\CA\siteminder\db\smpolicy.xml" npass vT

Note - After importing the default policy store objects restart the policy server.

Prepare for the Administrative UI Registration


xpsRegclient supplies the policy server with the administrator credentials. The policy server uses these credentials
to verify the registration request when you log into the Admin UI for the first time.
1.
2.
3.

Log into the Policy Server Host System.


Run the following command:
XPSRegclient siteminder[:passphrase] adminui-setup vT
Press Enter.

ample Use Case

Sample Use Case Scenario

Radiant Logic has many joint customers with CA who are using SiteMinder with VDS, including AON and Coca Cola.
The main driver is Mergers & Acquisitions and the main use case for all these customers is to use VDS as a single
user directory for SiteMinder (as the only user directory).
Using VDS as a user directory greatly simplifies the configuration changes needed in SiteMinder due to the addition
of a new user population: VDS is in charge of the identity integration and provides a single access point for
authentication. It can also consolidate user attributes coming from multiple places in a global user profile and
enable fine grained access policies. No need to modify each of the SiteMinder domains to add a new user
directory, and then have to modify the policies and other artifacts to integrate the new identities: all the changes
can be done at the VDS layer without impacting SiteMinder.
