Entitlement Capability ImplementationEntitlement Capability Implementation
This topic describes how licensing of appliances and services is implemented in NetWitness. The entitlement capability leverages myRSA (https://my.rsa.com/) as the mechanism for entitlement delivery.
Entitlements Created and Available to Customer.
After a customer order is processed, the entitlements (licenses) become available in myRSA. The entitlements are tied to an individual account.
Register NetWitness Server on myRSA and Map Entitlements to the Local License Server (LLS).
Synchronize the Server and Download Mapped Entitlements.
After the synchronization, entitlements that were mapped to the Local License Server on the NetWitness appliance are synchronized, but the entitlements have not been used in any way. For example, if you have purchased 10 Decoders and 10 Concentrators, 10 of 10 Decoder entitlements and 10 of 10 Concentrator entitlements would be available on the NetWitness Server.
Note: FNO-OD is the license server in the cloud on myRSA. The URL is rsasecurity.subscribenet.com. The customer's firewall must allow communications between this URL on port 80 (whatever it resolves to when using lookup or whois) and the NetWitness IP address.
