Deploying VMware Identity Manager in the DMZ provides information about how to deploy the Linux-based VMware Identity Manager virtual appliance in the DMZ instead of the internal network. For information about deploying VMware Identity Manager in the internal network, see Installing and Configuring VMware Identity Manager.

Intended Audience

The information is written for experienced Windows and Linux system administrators who are familiar with VMware technologies, particularly vCenter™, ESX™, and vSphere®, and with networking concepts, Active Directory, and databases.

Knowledge of other technologies, such as RSA Adaptive Authentication, RSA SecurID, and RADIUS is also helpful if you plan to implement those features.
