CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)

Issue/Introduction

We are tracking conversion to IP6 and want to follow up and see what the current status is for going to IPv6 with PAM. We are mainly interested in Privilege Access Manager and Socket Filter Adapters.

Environment

All supported PAM releases as of February 2020, with 3.3 being the latest release.

Resolution

IPV6 support in PAM is very limited at this time. The PAM server itself can be configured with an IPV6 address and accessed that way, but most PAM functionality only works in an IPV4 environment. This includes PAM components such as the Socket Filter Agent. PAM Engineering is working on a feature to add full IPV6 functionality in future releases, but there is no ETA as of February 2020.
