Many clients have requested that SSM would deliver account passwords via external content gateway, such as SMS gateway or Sendgrid using Web API with modern authentication. Currently account passwords can only be delivered via SMTP with basic auth, and it raises security issues in client side.
Furthermore it would also be good if SSM supports SMTP with modern auth and maybe Web API with modern auth for sending any emails.
Hi Juha - thanks for the feedback, supporting SMS based integration via REST calls is already in works. Supporting modern auth is in the roadmap for next year.
How come this has been requested 7 months ago - and by then it was already in the works - but still not available ... that sounds like a very slow development path.
I agree, our digital security has given us a deadline of February 2021 to remove legacy SMTP auth. I am following up with our customer support team otherwise we are going to have a challenge in distributing encrypted emails.
This is a concern for us also.
The current option for SMTP authentication is very insecure, just using a user name and password these days for such a critical service is not good enough. We really need to have authentication via certificates and modern authentication available asap.
Hoping that Saviynt can provide a more clear timeline for this, being a security driven company.
any updates when this feature would be available?
Modern auth for SMTP is available. You just need to check on the exact version. We have implemented it.
Any updates on sending the password via SMS REST API?
