Chapter 9. Setting the authentication method

Depending on how you use Red Hat Insights for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you must use one of two authentication methods:

  • Certificate-based authentication (CERT)

    The default authentication method is through certificates. Certificates are generated when you register a system with Red Hat Subscription Manager (RHSM) or when your system is managed by Red Hat Satellite system management. No additional configuration changes are required.

  • SSO credential-based Authentication (BASIC)

    The alternative authentication method is through SSO credentials. A valid Red Hat SSO credential is created when you have a valid Red Hat Customer Portal user name. To use SSO credentials with Red Hat Insights for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you must configure your system to use basic authentication.
