Entrust GetAccess Comprehensive is a four-day, instructor-led, hands-on overview of Entrust GetAccess. Course participants will plan, install and configure Entrust GetAccess and some of its optional components on Windows Server 2008 R2.

The course begins with an detailed look at the Entrust GetAccess product architecture. A single-machine installation of Entrust GetAccess is then performed, followed by comprehensive hands-on experience with the administrative tools, managing users, roles, resources, and policies.

Attendees learn about customization of the environment with Entrust GetAccess Administration Service Interface (ASI), extensions, custom cookies, and integration with other authentication mechanisms. Step-up authentication is explored, including the use of Entrust IdentityGuard as a secondary authentication method. Finally, the concepts of SAML2 are explored, and the attendees configure their systems to join a classroom SAML environment.

While prior knowledge of the concepts surrounding authentication is helpful, participants do not require any previous experience with Entrust products.

Previous experience with the Windows operating system is required as the hands-on exercises are completed on computers running Windows Server 2008 R2.

Who should attend: This four-day hands-on course is intended for technology professionals who will be responsible for planning, implementing, configuring, managing and supporting Entrust GetAccess.
