Rapid7 Insight Cloud Integration with AuthPoint

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Rapid7 Insight Cloud with AuthPoint as an identity provider. Rapid7 Insight Cloud must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint.

Rapid7 Insight Cloud Authentication Data Flow with AuthPoint

AuthPoint communicates with various cloud-based services and service providers with the SAML protocol. This diagram shows the data flow of an MFA transaction for Rapid7 Insight Cloud.


Before You Begin

Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:

Configure Rapid7 Insight Cloud

To start, you must download the metadata file from the Certificate Management page in the AuthPoint management UI. After you have that, you can configure Rapid7 Insight Cloud.

From the WatchGuard Cloud web UI:

  1. Log in to WatchGuard Cloud.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Configure > AuthPoint. If you have a Service Provider account, you must select an account from Account Manager.
  3. Select Resources.
  4. Click Certificate.

  1. Next to AuthPoint certificate you will associate with your resource, click and select Download Metadata and Download Certificate. We recommend that you choose the certificate with the latest expiration date.

    The AuthPoint metadata provides your resource, in this case Rapid7 Insight Cloud, with information necessary to identify AuthPoint as a trusted identity provider.

  1. Log in to Rapid7 Insight Cloud as an administrator.
  2. Select Settings > Authentication Settings > SSO Settings.
  3. Select the Enable slider.

SSO settings

  1. In the Add your X.509 Certificate section, upload the AuthPoint certificate you downloaded previously.
  2. Copy the ACS URL and Audience URL values. You need this information to create a SAML resource in the next section.
  3. Open the AuthPoint metadata file you downloaded and find the entityID and SingleSignOnService Location values.
  4. In the Issuer URL text box, type or paste the entityID value from the AuthPoint metadata file.
  5. In the SSingle Sign-On URL text box, type or paste the SingleSignOnService Location value from the AuthPoint metadata file.
  6. Click Submit.

SAML settings

Configure AuthPoint

Before AuthPoint can receive authentication requests from Rapid7 Insight Cloud, you must specify Rapid7 Insight Cloud as a SAML resource in AuthPoint. You must also assign an access policy for the Rapid7 Insight Cloud resource to the user group(s) that must authenticate to log in.

Add a SAML Resource in AuthPoint

From the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Resources.
  2. From the Choose a Resource Type drop-down list, select SAML. Click Add Resource.

  1. On the SAML page, in the Name text box, type a name for this resource.
  2. From the Application Type drop-down list, select Rapid7.
  3. In the Service Provider Entity ID text box, type or paste the Audience URL value copied from Rapid7 Insight Cloud.
  4. In the Assertion Consumer Service text box, type or paste the ACS URL value copied from Rapid7 Insight Cloud.
  5. From the User ID sent on redirection to service provider drop-down list, select Email. The user ID is the attribute for an AuthPoint user that is compared to the user name in your application. These values must match.
  6. From the Signature Method drop-down list, select SHA-256.
  7. From the AuthPoint Certificate drop-down list, select the AuthPoint certificate to associate with your resource. This must be the same certificate that you used to download the metadata file in the Configure Rapid7 Insight Cloud section.
  8. Click Save.

Rapid7 Insight Cloud only supports identity provider initiated login. To use MFA with Rapid7 Insight Cloud, you must add an IdP portal resource. For detailed steps, see Configure the IdP Portal.

Add an Access Policy to AuthPoint

You must have at least one user group in AuthPoint for authentication with Rapid7 Insight Cloud, and you must assign an access policy for the Rapid7 Insight Cloud resource and the IdP portal resource to that group. If you already have a group, you do not have to add another group.

In the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Groups.
  2. To add a new group, click Add Group. If you already have a group that you want to use, select the group to edit it.

  1. In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the group.
  2. (Optional) In the Description text box, type a description of the group.

  1. In the Access Policy section, click Add Policy.

  1. In the Add Policy dialog box, from the Resource drop-down list, select the resource you want to add an access policy for.
  2. (Optional) To require that users type their password before they authenticate for this resource, enable the Require Password Authentication toggle.
  3. Select the authentication options that users in this group can select from when they authenticate.

    For SAML resources, if you select more than one authentication option, users must select one of the available options when they authenticate. For example, if you select OTP and Push, users can choose to type their OTP or approve a push to authenticate. You cannot require that they do both.

  1. Click Add.

  1. (Optional) Add one or more safe locations to your group. For more information about safe locations and detailed instructions to add them, see About Safe Locations.
  2. Click Save.

Add Users to AuthPoint

Before you assign users to a group, you must add the users to AuthPoint. There are two ways to add AuthPoint user accounts:

  • Sync users from an external user database
  • Add local AuthPoint users

Each user must be a member of a group. You must add at least one group before you can add users to AuthPoint.

Test the Integration

To test AuthPoint MFA with Rapid7 Insight Cloud, you can authenticate with a mobile token on your mobile device. For SAML resources, you can choose any method (push, QR code, or one-time password).

In this example, we show the push authentication method (users receive a push notification in the mobile app that they must approve to authenticate).

The email address that you use must be associated with both your AuthPoint and Rapid7 Insight Cloud user accounts.

To test the integration:

  1. In a web browser, go to the IdP portal. You can see the URL for the IdP portal when you edit your IdP portal resource in the AuthPoint management UI.
  2. Type your email address or AuthPoint user name. Click Next.
  3. If required, in the Password text box, type your password.
  4. For the authentication method, select Send Push.
  5. Approve the authentication request that is sent to your mobile device.
  6. In the IdP portal, select the Rapid7 Insight Cloud tile.
    A new tab opens in your browser with an Okta page that is similar to the IdP portal.
  7. Select Rapid7 Insight.
    You are logged in to Rapid7 Insight Cloud.
