Trying to puppetize proprietary products is a terrible and thankless task - particularly ones with interative install scripts... Regardless, I was disappointed that no Puppet module existed to configure RSA Authentication Agent for PAM, so I present you with this pitiful module. This is basically just a puppetization of the instructions found here:


  1. Open up the appropriate ports in your firewalls and/or security groups. I had to open 5500 UDP and 5550 TCP.

  2. Download the agent, PAM-Agent_v7., from here:

  3. Create an sdconf.rec file on your RSA server.

  4. Create a class named "profile::rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam" in your Puppet repo with content like this:

class profile::rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam {
  include ::rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam
  include ::rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam::sshd
  # Optional service declaration for sshd if you don't have one elsewhere.
  #service { 'sshd':
  #  ensure => running,
  file { '/var/ace/sdconf.rec':
    mode   => '0600',
    source => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam/sdconf.rec",
  file { '/opt/PAM-Agent_v7.':
    source => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam/PAM-Agent_v7.",
  1. Copy sdconf.rec and PAM-Agent_v7. to modules/profile/files/rsa_securid_auth_agent_for_pam/

  2. Did you remember to open up your firewall ports?


Here, include a complete list of your module's classes, types, providers, facts, along with the parameters for each. Users refer to this section (thus the name "Reference") to find specific details; most users don't read it per se.


No parameters.


No parameters. Note that this class requires that you are defining Service['sshd'] in your local Puppet code.


This module is currently only designed to work on RHEL 7, it has only been tested with Puppet 4, and it only works with PAM-Agent_v7.


Please help! Make this module less terrible. Make it work with other operating systems. Contact RSA and ask them to stop hiding their download behind an account wall so I can change the source to "http://".
