How do I determine the mutual authentication image associated with a user ?

Problem

Customer is not sure that the mutual authentication image being presented is the right one.  

Solution

Mutual authentication images are stored in IdentityGuard as an Auth Secret and can be retrieved using the Admin Service API command line sample application.  To do this, follow the steps outlined below 

1) On the IdentityGuard server navigate to the client sample directory: 
 
Windows


C:\Program Files\Entrust\IdentityGuard\identityguard\client\sample

Linux/Unix

/opt/entrust/identityguard/client/sample

NOTE: Substitute with your version of IdentityGuard.  E.g. v12 would be 120 


2) Edit the properties file igadmintest.properties 


Put in your own user account values for igadmintest.adminid and igadmintest.adminpassword.  This account should have superuser rights. 

3) Execute: runAdmin.bat userGet

NOTE: For Unix/Linux systems the command is:

 ./runAdmin.sh userGet

The result will include everything including AuthSecrets  For example: 
 
Auth secret:
Name: SECRET_IMAGE
Value: Message-ID: <[email protected]>
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/x-url; charset=ASCII
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
 
/sampleimages/ent_172.jpg 
 

In this example the mutual auth image is ent_172.jpg which is a spool of string.  The sample app images can be found in IdentityGuardSelf Service directory:
 
Windows:


C:\Program Files\Entrust\IdentityGuardSelfService\identityguardselfservice\webapps\server\IdentityGuardSelfService\sampleimages

Linux/Unix: 

/opt/Entrust/IdentityGuardSelfService/identityguardselfservice/webapps/server/IdentityGuardSelfService/sampleimages
