Password Manager Pro Release 10.4 (10401) (5th December 2019)

Enhancements

  • Remote File Transfer - Linux
    Earlier, it was possible to transfer files from remote Windows machines only during Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) sessions launched via the Password Manager Pro interface. Now, from the build 10401, you will be able to transfer files to remote Linux machines as well, using Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) by launching SSH sessions directly from the console. However, unlike Windows, the remote file transfer is one way in Linux, i.e., to the target machine only.
  •  
  • APIs Added
    Two new APIs for "Sharing a resource to a user" and "Sharing a account to a user" have been introduced in this release.

Bug Fixes

  • While adding a resource manually, when more than 100 characters were entered in the 'Location' field, which can originally hold up to 250 characters, the 'Edit Resource' page failed to show up. This issue has been fixed now.
  • In earlier versions of Password Manager Pro, the 'Account Addition API' did not work for MySQL, MS SQL and Postgre SQL database resources alone. This issue has been fixed now.
  • In earlier versions of Password Manager Pro, password reset did not work for the AWS IAM account alone. This issue has been fixed now.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.4 (10400) (18th October 2019)

New Features

  • Integration with DigiCert SSL
    Password Manager Pro integrates with DigiCert—a leading TLS/SSL, IoT and various other PKI solutions provider. Users can request, acquire, create, deploy, renew and automate the end-to-end management of SSL/TLS certificates issued by DigiCert, all directly from the Password Manager Pro portal.
  • CSR Templates
    It is now possible to create and use predefined templates for CSR (Certificate Signing Request) generation.
  • Option to Exclude Certificates
    Users can now choose to ignore certain certificates during the SSL discovery or manual addition of certificates into the Password Manager Pro repository. A new option is added under 'Admin >> SSH/SSL >> Exclude Certificate', which you can utilize to add the certificates to be excluded, by specifying their Common Name and Serial Number.
  • Support for RFC2136 DNS Updates
    Password Manager Pro now supports RFC2136 DNS updates to complete domain control validation while acquiring certificates from public certificate authorities (CAs). Option to modify the email id of the Let's Encrypt account, used by Let's Encrypt to send email alerts of expiring certificates.

Enhancements

  • Earlier, it was possible to associate a SSH key with a user account only when the target system was reachable from the Password Manager Pro server. This was troublesome when the target system was inaccessible. Now, from the Password Manager Pro build 10400, an option is provided for Linux resource types that users can opt to force map SSH keys to user accounts, even if the target systems are not reachable. 
  • Users can now use Password Manager Pro to sign CSRs (either using your internal Microsoft CA or a root certificate) as and when they are generated.
  • Password Manager Pro now supports file-based discovery for scheduled SSH and SSL discovery tasks.
  • A new dashboard widget to provide data about SSL configuration vulnerabilities has been added.
  • Support is enabled for the discovery of SSH keys with ECDSA and ED25519 signature algorithms.
  • A new REST API to view the private key passphrase of SSL certificates has been added.

Bug Fixes

  • During OpenLDAP and Novell Directory import, new users' domain names were not updated properly, which caused login exception. This has been fixed now.
  • AzureAD did not work when the proxy server was configured in Password Manager Pro. This has been fixed now.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.3 (10302) (23rd September 2019)

Enhancement

Redesigned Password Manager Pro Agent

The Password Manager Pro (PMP) agent is used to connect with and manage remote resources that are not attached to the PMP server. Earlier, the agent was downloaded from the PMP console and straight away deployed in target systems. Now, from build 10302, each time while installing the agent on a remote server, you will have to provide a unique 'Agent Key', generated and copied from the PMP console while downloading the agent. The keys are for single use only and will be automatically revoked after that. If you wish to install a key in multiple servers, you can keep the key active for the number of hours specified.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.3 (10301) (09th September 2019)

New Features

Integration with ManageEngine Analytics Plus
ManageEngine Password Manager Pro integrates with ManageEngine Analytics Plus, an on-premises reporting and business intelligence service. The PMP-Analytics Plus integration brings about out-of-the-box analytics on resources, user accounts and audits. Analytics Plus sources data from PMP via its API using user login credentials. The reports are generated automatically with up-to-date data, and you can gain a complete overview of the reports from the PMP-specific dashboard of Analytics Plus. You can also set timeline filters.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.3 (10300) (22nd August 2019)

New Features

Password Manager Pro Plugins for Chef and Puppet
Introducing new plugins for Chef and Puppet CI/CD platform, in addition to Jenkins and Ansible. Both Chef and Puppet use the Master-Slave architecture, where communication happens via an SSL-based secure encrypted channel. Dedicated external app plugins are provided for both the plugins, so that the code pulls the passwords directly from Password Manager Pro during run time, instead of storing them as plain texts within script files. This combats security threats to resources, enhances the security of passwords and eliminates the need for users to modify the code when passwords are changed. The plugins thereby improve the overall security in organizations' DevOps pipeline and also impose consistent rotation and automatic update of the new passwords in the respective remote devices.

Enhancements

  • Bulk Resource/Account/Resource Group Sharing
    Previously, it was possible to share only a single resource, or an account, or a resource group, with user(s) or user group(s). Now, users with proper permission can share resources, accounts and resource groups, in bulk, with user(s) or user group(s).
  • Access Control Enhancements
    • Earlier, it was possible to set only two admins as approvers for password request under Resource Actions >> Configure Access Control >> Miscellaneous Settings. From now on, Admins can set 'n' number of admins (5 by default and 10 as maximum) as approvers for password request. The default approver count can be altered under General Settings.
    • Admins can now configure auto-approval for different days with different time configurations (Maximum of 3 different time configurations per day), under Resource Actions >> Configure Access Control >> Auto Approval. It is possible to configure the same time for every day and also different time configurations for different days.
  • New API Added
    A new API to generate passwords using existing policies in Password Manager Pro is added.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.2 (10200) (29th July 2019)

New Features

  • SSL Discovery

    • Agent-based Discovery
      Password Manager Pro now supports agent-based SSL discovery that allows administrators to discover and import certificates present across a network by installing one or more instances of agent software on target systems. The agent, which is available as a compressed package with all the necessary configurations in password Manager Pro interface, once installed in the required end servers, performs certificate discovery and updates the certificate database.

    • Load Balancer Certificate Discovery
      Password Manager Pro now allows administrator users to discover and consolidate SSL certificates deployed to Linux based load balancers such as Nginx and F5 through a process tunnelled via SSH.

    • Option to Login to Certificate Store and Microsoft CA using Service Accounts
      A dedicated option is provided for the Administrators to make use of the Password Manager Pro service account credentials to log in to target systems, while performing Certificate Store and Microsoft CA discovery, without having to manually enter them.
  • SSH and SSL Discovery

    • Subnet Discovery
      Password Manager Pro now provides subnet discovery option for SSL certificates, allowing administrators to discover the certificates from specific subnetworks within an IP range.
    • Option to Exclude IP addresses
      Users can now choose to exclude specific IP addresses when performing bulk discovery from an IP address range.
  • Key-based Authentication for Certificate Deployment
    Password Manager Pro now provides an additional key-based authentication functionality (apart from the conventional password authentication), which users can leverage to deploy certificates to password-less Linux end servers.
  • Support for Amazon Route 53 DNS
    In addition to Azure and Cloudflare DNS, Password Manager Pro now supports Amazon Route 53 DNS to complete the domain control validation process when acquiring certificates from public CAs.
  • New SSH Key Types Added
    From now on, two additional SSH key types - ECDSA and ED25519 will be available for selection while creating new SSH keys, out of which, rotation is possible for the key type ED25519.
  • Option to Use Existing Password Manager Pro Account during Certificate Deployment
    While deploying certificates to target web servers, a dedicated option is provided for the users to use an existing Password Manager Pro account, instead of entering the credentials.
  • New Rest APIs Added
    Two new REST APIs are newly added; REST API to add certificates to Password Manager Pro certificate repository and REST API to delete ssh keys.

Bug Fixes

  • Earlier, when a certificate was deployed to two servers, and if one of the deployed servers was deleted, the "Multiple Servers" icon was still shown. This has now been fixed.
  • Formerly, when multiple certificates were discovered from a single resource, and when the DNS name of one of the certificates was changed, the DNS names of all the other certificates also got changed. This has now been fixed.
  • Earlier, when the scheduled discovery operations for SSH and SSL failed, there were a few instances, where the audit records were not updated properly. This has now been fixed.
  • Previously, during the following processes Microsoft Certificate Store discovery, server certificate upload, and Radius server configuration (server secret field), if a password, containing special characters, was entered, a "harmful content" error was thrown. This has been fixed.
  • Earlier, certificates without an original common name (with the SAN name as the common name, by default) failed to update, after running a scheduled discovery. This issue has now been fixed.
  • Previously, the 'Days' filter in the SSL Expiry Report failed to render correct results. This has now been fixed.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.1 (10104) (15th July 2019)

Bug Fix

When PMP configured with MS SQL database was upgraded to the latest version 10103, and an attempt was made using ConfigureReplication.bat/.sh to reconfigure High Availability, replication failed to initialize between the primary and secondary databases, due to failure in publisher creation in the primary server.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.1 (10103) (26th June 2019)

New Features

  • Integration with ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus (ADSSP)
    Earlier, when the ADSSP's privileged domain account password was reset in PMP, the new password had to be manually updated in ADSSP. If not, ADSSP still retains the old password, thereby restricting the AD users from performing tasks such as password reset, account unlock, etc. With PMP-ADSSP integration, the privileged domain account details of ADSSP will be mapped with the domain account details in PMP. So, whenever the password reset of ADSSP's privileged domain account is performed in PMP, the new password will be automatically updated in ADSSP as well.

  • Integration with ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus (SDP)
    Technicians using SDP often need to access target machines (or resources) manually to resolve issues, which involves security-related challenges, such as sharing sensitive passwords for authentication, etc., especially while using the privileged accounts. They also had the pain of jumping between machines to perform different tasks. With this integration, accessing the remote systems from the ServiceDesk Plus portal is just a click away for the Technicians. Administrators can now provide the advantage of secure remote access to the target machines (or resources) only to the authorized Technicians, without sharing the credentials. The Technicians can remotely access the target endpoints (or resources) from the ServiceDesk Plus portal without having to log in to PMP each time to fetch the credentials.

Enhancement

  • Option to add the recorded RDP session link to the "Change" description in ServiceDesk Plus
    From now on, while integrating Password Manager Pro with the ServiceDesk Plus ticketing system, in addition to the option "Use ChangeID for Validation", a new option to allow PMP to add the link to the recorded RDP session to the "Change" Description of ServiceDesk Plus will be available.

Bug Fixes

  • In PMP build 10102, the Periodic Password Export could not be scheduled, when either of the options 'Once', or, 'Day(s)' or 'Monthly' was chosen. This issue is fixed now.
  • In PMP build 10101, when a custom resource type was created (under Admin >> Resources >> Resource Types >> Add) using the "Existing Resource Type" category and applied to the resources, the password reset failed for the Domain accounts in the resource. This issue is fixed now.
  • While handling a security fix in build 10102, the URL of PMP Agent was mistakenly blocked along with a few other URLs. This interrupted the communication between the Agent and the PMP server, which in turn suspended the Agent-related activities in PMP. This issue is fixed now.
  • Password Manager Pro provides the option to configure remote password reset through a landing server for Cisco devices such as Cisco Catalyst, Cisco IOS, and Cisco CAT OS. From PMP build 10001 onwards, when an existing landing server was selected to perform the remote password reset for a resource, the settings though appeared to be saved did not get saved actually. This issue is fixed.
  • In addition to using account credentials to launch a remote SSH connection, Password Manager Pro also allows the remote connections to be tunnelled through private keys. From PMP build 10001 onwards, when the private key option is enabled or disabled for a Linux-based resource type (Linux, Cisco IOS, Cisco CatOS, Cisco PIX, Juniper NetScreen OS, HP Procurve and VMware ESXi), the auto-logon helper option for that resource got disabled, thereby entirely removing the option to launch a remote connection. This issue is fixed.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.1 (10102) (4th June 2019)

Enhancements

  • Support for ECDSA key in the new OpenSSH private key file format
    In Password Manager Pro, SSH connections can be initiated using both passwords and keys. And the product already supports key-based authentication using RSA and DSA keys. Now that OpenSSH has introduced the new ECDSA key format, Password Manager Pro will also support the ECDSA key format for SSH connections with this upgrade.
  • Support for the latest versions of Sybase ASE for Remote Password Reset
    Earlier, we had support only for the older version of Sybase ASE database, version 12.5, to carry out the Remote Password Reset. Now, we have enhanced our support to the newer versions of Sybase ASE database, from version 15 & above.

Security Fixes

  • Earlier, the common unique Authentication token (generated during installation) was used for all the mobile and extension logins. Hereafter, each login to the mobile and extension will have a unique Authentication token.
  • The Captcha authentication is introduced as a security check in the Login page and Personal Passphrase page of Extension, to limit the number of failed login attempts.
  • Earlier, during API calls, the Authentication token was passed as a request parameter. Hereafter, each API call made to the application requires the Authentication token to be passed in the request header.

Bug Fix

  • PMP - MSP Edition is designed to create a Resource group named "Default Group" when an MSP Admin is assigned to manage any client ORG. In our earlier versions, if an MSP Admin is removed from managing a client ORG and then re-added, another "Default Group" was created under their ownership, causing duplication. This issue has now been addressed. When an MSP admin is removed and readded to manage a Client ORG, PMP will match the existing "Default Group" of this admin and continue to retain the same without creating a duplicate group.
Note: Some of the security enhancements rolled out in this version will take effect only when both the server-side and the client-side applications (Browser extensions and Mobile apps) are updated. Therefore, we recommend the users to upgrade the PMP application and subsequently update the browser extensions and mobile apps in their respective systems and mobile devices.

Password Manager Pro Release 10.1 (10101) (10th May 2019)

Security Fix

It's been long since we started using "C:/ManageEngine" as the default installation directory. But, this gave rise to the vulnerability that any locally authenticated user was able to view/add/delete/modify files under "C:/ManageEngine". Hence, as a security practice, we have switched to "C:\Program Files\ManageEngine\PMP" as the default installation directory. We recommend all our customers to have their installations under "C:\Program Files\ManageEngine\PMP" only. Instead, if you wish to install Password Manager Pro under any other folder, please go through our best practices guide for the necessary precautions to be taken.

Minor Bug Fixes

Password Manager Pro Release 9.7 (9700) (29th May 2018)

This release introduces strong controls in Password Manager Pro for protecting personal data stored and processed in the product, in compliance with privacy regulations.

New Features & Enhancements

Additional protection in web GUI while displaying personal data

Form fields that contain personal data such as Username, DNS Name, Email ID, Server Name and more will henceforth be masked at all times to enhance protection. Additionally, when a specific user unmasks and views any of the masked data fields, the action captured in the audit trails with a timestamp and the IP address of the machine from which the user viewed the data.

Canned report to demonstrate GDPR compliance stature

Password Manager Pro now comes with a canned report that tells you the stature of your compliance with specific requirements listed in Chapter 3 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in terms of how users' personal data is handled within the product. This report, apart from providing a holistic view of how personal data is handled, will also prove useful while preparing for privacy audits.

Provision to authorize selective administrators with privacy administration privileges

From v9700 onwards, a new "Authorized Administrators" option will appear under Admin >> Settings. This option can be used to authorize only the desired administrators with the privilege to view, access, and modify the following Password Manager Pro settings:

Note:
When you upgrade to v9700 from earlier versions, users with the following roles will be automatically assigned as authorized administrators:

Password protected exports

Administrators can now include an additional layer of password protection for export operations across Password Manager Pro. This applies to,

The authorized administrator can either set a global passphrase which will be uniformly used for the aforementioned export operations or allow the users to define their own passphrase for their exported files.

Mandating administrator acknowledgement of data transfer while setting up integration with third party applications

Henceforth, when the Password Manager Pro administrator sets up integration with the services mentioned below, the administrator will be required to acknowledge the data transfer from Password Manager Pro server for each respective integration.

Support for Encryption at Rest (EAR) while using MS SQL server as the backend database

For Password Manager Pro installations that function with a MS SQL server as the backend database, Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) is supported henceforth to achieve EAR. TDE encrypts all the data and log files stored in the SQL server and the key used to encrypt the database is also secured further with a certificate to enhance protection.

Backup file encryption

Database backup (.zip) files in Password Manager Pro-both on-demand and scheduled, will hereafter be encrypted with the Password Manager Pro master encryption key and stored in the destination directory securely. In case of Password Manager Pro installation running a remote MS SQL server database, the backup file will be encrypted only if the specified backup destination is within the server in which Password Manager Pro is installed and not the remote machine.

Privacy controls for canned reports

Password Manager Pro now allows authorized administrators to configure privacy settings for canned reports. Administrators can choose from an exhaustive list of personal data, deciding whether each input in the list should be completely omitted from the reports or included as masked information.

IP restrictions

IP-based restrictions are now supported to limit inbound connections and minimize unwanted traffic to Password Manager Pro server. Restrictions can be configured for web access, API calls, communication from native mobile applications, browser extensions, and Password Manager Pro agents deployed on target machines. The IP restrictions can be set at various levels and combinations, such as defined IP ranges or individual IP addresses. The authorized administrator can either whitelist or blacklist the set of desired IP addresses.

Trash can for delete operations

Users and resources in Password Manager Pro can now also be moved to trash alternatively instead of permanent deletion, along with the option to restore from trash when needed. The trashed users and resources will be retained by Password Manager Pro only until the next rotation schedule is carried out for the master encryption key.

Purging selective session recordings

Earlier, session recordings and chat logs could only be purged in bulk by configuring to delete recordings that are older than a specified number of days. From v9700 onwards, session recordings can also be individually selected under Audit >> Recorded Sessions and purged. Additionally, chat logs for a specific session recording can also be deleted while retaining the recording itself and vice versa.

Managing unidentified email addresses in Password Manager Pro

A new provision has been added to enable administrators to track and remove unidentified email addresses in Password Manager Pro which do not belong to any of the users in the application. This provision currently allows management of unidentified email addresses which are captured in "User Sessions" audit as well as those that are configured as notification email recipients for scheduled tasks' completion statuses and license expiry alerts.

Emergency Measures

In the rare scenario that a suspicious activity is sensed within Password Manager Pro but has not yet been identified, a set of recommended best practices that can be carried out have been added under Admin >> Manage >> Emergency Measures. The illustrative list of incident response actions give the administrator a head start on stopping all inward and outward communication to and from Password Manager Pro server respectively, such as stopping API calls, blocking agent communication, and stopping the SSHD server.

The enhancements include:

Microsoft CA Certificate Signing

Password Manager Pro now allows users to get certificate requests signed from Microsoft Certificate Authority, thereby facilitating complete life cycle management for certificates issued by Microsoft Certificate Authority.

CMDB Integration for SSL Certificates Synchronization

Administrators can now sync SSL certificates stored in Password Manager Pro's repository with ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus CMDB and map certificates to specific servers / applications in the CMDB. This allows them to monitor their usage and expiration from ServiceDesk Plus' CMDB.

SSL Certificate Groups

This enhancement allows users to organize SSL certificates into logical groups based on various criteria and execute actions in bulk for the groups.

Localization Support for Turkish

Introducing localization support for Turkish in Password Manager Pro's multi-language editions, in addition to Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, French, and Polish languages.

Enhancements and fixes

  1. Password Access Control Workflow has been upgraded. With this update:
    • One or more user groups can be designated to approve password access requests.
    • Earlier, some users can be excluded from access control. Now, you have an option to exclude both users and user groups from access control.
    • Users can specify when they want to access the password - now or later, while making a request and can also send a reminder mail before the access time.
    • Similarly, administrator can specify when the user can access the password - now or later, while processing the request.
    • In addition, users can be enforced to provide reason for password retrieval.
    • Reminder e-mail can be sent to the administrator to approve the password request before the stipulated time.
    • A grace time of upto 60 minutes can be provided to the user when the access time ends.
    • Auto check-in time can be specified when the request is approved by the administrator.
    • Maximum time period can be specified after which the pending access request becomes void.
  2. Password Manager Pro now integrates with ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus by validating change request in addition to the ticket ID entered by the user in the ticketing system. And validated occurs only when the change ID provided is approved in ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus.
  3. Password Manager Pro enables recording of RDP remote session launched from the product and you can trace the recorded RDP remote session through the resource name, user who launched the session, time at which the session was launched. In addition, start and stop audit for RDP remote session has been enhanced now.
  4. In v9000 and above, the mail notification sent to the users about the access permission shared or revoked contained blank values. This has been fixed now.
