Enterprise users often attach the management interface of SecAst to an IP on a management VLAN, and access to the management VLAN is restricted. So with this setup administrators don’t want another level of authentication – so we leave it off by default.

However, if you would like to enforce authentication on the SecAst web GUI, you can add a username and password using the steps outlined in section 2.3.5 of the installation guide (Secure the Web Interface). I’ll repeat the Linux command here to save you from digging out the manual:

htpasswd -c /usr/local/secast/web_interface/.htpasswd user1

The above line will create username ‘user1’ and then prompt for a password to be associated with the username. After that the web GUI will require authentication to view the web page.
