Note
The application generates log files, which consumes additional hard disk space.

The sizing requirements listed above are only recommendations for a default setup. The sizing may differ, for example depending on the following things:

  • Number of concurrent users in the Identity Manager applications.
  • System architecture: for example high availability setup, combined or distributed setup of the Identity Manager applications.
  • OS footprint: different operating systems consume different RAM/CPU loads.


Note

It is recommended to host the application server and the database server in the same data center (but on separated servers). Connecting a Identity Manager application server to a database server via a WAN connection would mean higher latencies and would affect the performance of the system.



Expand
titleOperating systems

The following operating systems are supported:

  • Windows 10 (Client OS not recommended for production environment) 
  • Windows Server 2012 / 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Linux (setup routine may differ per Linux distribution and might cause additional efforts)


Expand
titleSoftware

The following software is supported:

  • OpenJDK or Oracle Java
    • Version 11 (64-bit), Tested on OpenJDK 11.0.6+10
  • Application Server:
    • Apache Tomcat 9.0 ( >= version 9.0.33)

Required ports for Tomcat

On the Apache Tomcat at least two ports are required, one for HTTP and one for HTTPS. Tomcat default ports are 8080 (HTTP) and 8443 (HTTPS). To avoid port collisions, the Identity Manager distribution package is preconfigured with 18080/18443. The port numbers can be configured in the configuration file server.xml. Technically, it is not necessary to use HTTPS, but it is highly recommended.

titleWeb browsers

All Identity Manager clients are executed in up-to-date HTML5 web browsers such as:

  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Safari
  • Microsoft Edge (Edge HTML engine)

Identity Manager releases are always tested with the latest browser versions.

~ 100 MB for Nexus Card SDK installation

Note
Nexus Card SDK is only necessary on a capture or production client.



CPU2 GHz> 2 GHz
RAM4 GB> 4 GB



Expand
titleOperating systems

The following operating systems are supported:

  • Windows 10
  • Linux (for clients without image capture, printing and encoding)

Info
titleMobile device platforms

Platforms of mobile devices, for example iOS, Android, and Windows RT, are only supported by certain functions of the browser-based Identity Manager Self-Service, but cannot be used with Identity Manager and Identity Manager Admin.

titleJasperReports

The following version of JasperReports is supported:

  • Templates in JasperReports format (.jrxml) version 6.5.1 are supported

titleCapture or production client: Software

If a workstation is used as a capture client or production client, the Nexus Card SDK application must be installed and licensed.

This requires a Windows-based workstation (PC). For complete installation requirements for Card SDK, see the Nexus Card SDK documentation.

The following version is required:

  • Nexus Card SDK version 5.6.

For PKI cryptochip encoding the following is also required:

  • A PKCS#11 compliant smart card middleware.
  • OpenJDK or Oracle Java
    • Version 11 (64-bit), tested on OpenJDK 11.0.6+10
    • Architecture: 32-bit (for any smart card middleware) or 64-bit (for any smart card middleware except Nexus Personal)
  • The smart card middleware and client-side Java must have the same OS architecture, either 32-bit or 64-bit, since Identity Manager's encoding component connects from the client-side Java to the middleware.

Data connectors

Identity Manager allows synchronization of data with external systems for many different use cases, for example card data, employee data from corporate directories, and entitlements from physical access control systems. Import and export of data can be done for various formats, for example LDAP, JDBC, CSV and SCIM.
