CA Access Gateway is a scalable, manageable, and extensible stand-alone server that provides a proxy-based solution for access control. CA Access Gateway employs a proxy engine that provides a network gateway for the enterprise and supports multiple session schemes that do not rely on traditional cookie-based technology.
The embedded web agent enables Single Sign-On (SSO) across an enterprise. CA Access Gateway provides access control for HTTP and HTTPS requests and cookieless SSO. Also, the product stores session information in the in-memory session store. Proxy rules define how the CA Access Gateway forwards or redirects requests to resources located on destination servers within the enterprise.
By providing a single gateway for network resources, CA Access Gateway separates the corporate network and centralizes access control.
Note: SR-IOV interfaces (1/x and 10/x) that are part of a channel do not appear in the list of interfaces because channels are not supported on a CA Access Gateway instance. For more information about the features of CA Access Gateway, see the product documentation on Wiki
Before you can provision a CA Access Gateway instance, you must download an XVA image. After you have downloaded the XVA image, upload it to the NetScaler SDX appliance. Make sure you are using Management Service version 10.5 build 52.3.e or later on the NetScaler SDX appliance. To provision a CA Access Gateway, first you need to upload the XVA image to the SDX appliance and then provision an instance.
