We're running a Policy Server 12.8SP2 on RedHat 7 and we'd like to
know if there's an Authentication Scheme for RSA as inbuilt
functionality ?




Policy Server 12.8SP2 on RedHat 7;




At first glance, Policy Server 12.8SP2 offers as inbuilt RSA
ACE/Securid Authentication Scheme. You'll find details about it here :

  SecurID Authentication Schemes

    The RSA Ace/SecureID authentication schemes authenticate users
    logging in with ACE credentials, which include the user names, PINs,
    and TOKENCODEs. ACE user names and passwords reside in an ACE/Server
    user store, and an ACE/Server administrator can change these
    credentials. SecureID tokens generate single-use TOKENCODEs.


And the Policy Server 12.8SP2 supports the following RSA server
version :

  Symantec SiteMinder 12.8 Product Support Matrix

    5 Third-Party Product Compatibility

      The following table lists supported third-party products:

 | Product                    | Version |

      Applicable Support Notes:

      1. For RHEL 7 platform, note that RSA SDK support is from RHEL 7.1
  onwards. Hence policy server needs to be deployed on RHEL 7.1 or
  above, to use RSA SecurID authentication.
