Okta Training

Implement Advanced Server Access (ASA)

Course Overview

Extend Okta to your infrastructure with Advanced Server Access. Learn how ASA secures administrator access for Linux and Windows servers. You can replace server account passwords and static keys with an identity centered solution that leverages MFA, ephemeral certificates, and seamless client tool integration to provide you with the most secure and reliable architecture possible. 

In this course, you will get hands-on practice using an Okta org to configure identity first, zero-trust access management for your cloud and on-premise infrastructure.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the architecture of ASA. 
  • Identity components of ASA. 
  • Create a new ASA team and projects. 
  • Configure server agents and enrollment. 
  • Integrate ASA with client tools. 
  • Configure client enrollment. 
  • Create access policies and entitlements. 
  • Use the API to access reporting data. 
  • Deploy Cloud servers with automatic enrollment. 
  • Monitor and troubleshoot ASA.
