Introduction:

CA TPX is capable of coordinating with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Advanced Authentication Mainframe (AAM) enabled in your external security products.

Environment:
TPX 5.4
Instructions:

Refer to TPX 5.4 documentation for up to date implementation instructions related to MFA/AAM:

 

IMPORTANT: TPX supports RACF password phrase and MFA through the SAF interface.  Sites using IBM RACF must configure CA TPX to use SAF security. Set SMRT Security System to SAF and SAMT to SAF. 

 

There are several Published Solutions required for MFA/AAM implementation with CA TPX.  

At the time of this document publication, these are the available CA TPX PTFs required for MFA/AMM:

1) TPX LOCK: USER CREDENTIALS REVERIFICATION BY SECURITY - CA TPX LOCK

Function does not call security system for the user's credentials to be re-verified for the unlock process of LOCKED terminal.  AAM/MFA users using CA TPX LOCK cannot unlock their terminal.
