I have been working on a project to integrate many platforms with Thales Safenet Trusted Access to enable multi-factor authentication to improve access security to those platforms. One of those platforms is VMware Horizon.
Since the release of Horizon version 7.11, SAML based authentication has been a supported protocol for enabling MFA. Prior to this, it was only possible to use RADIUS based authentication to enable MFA, which has some limitations. namely that as far as I know it does not support conditional access and does not support push notifications for One Time Passcode soft tokens.
Safenet Trusted Access support a lot of applications out of the box, but Horizon is not one of them. This guide will show you how to make it work.
Before we begin, I am going to make a few assumptions. For this, to work, you need to be running a Horizon Unified Access Gateway appliance as well as a minimum of Horizon 7.11. I will also assume you have an active Thales Safenet Trusted Access subscription.
Step 1 – Configure a new application in STA
Login into STA and choose the option to add a new application.
