Managing accounts

You can manage credentials for both passwords and SSH keys.

Password management

Centrify Privileged Access Service offers password management by:

  • Rotating passwords to a value unknown by humans.
  • Password change according to your systems password profile settings.
  • Passwords are rotated on a periodic rotation schedule and upon password checkin.

Note:   We recommend that privileged account passwords be managed.

SSH Key Management

Centrify Privileged Access Serviceoffers SSH key management by:

  • Rotating SSH keys, which generates a new key and retires the old key. Once rotated, a new key is added to the SSH keys list and permissions change if the original key was shared.
  • New SSH keys are created using specified key algorithm setting.
  • SSH keys are rotated on a periodic rotation schedule.
