Microsoft Entra SSO integration with ThreatQ Platform
In this article, you'll learn how to integrate ThreatQ Platform with Microsoft Entra ID. ThreatQ improves the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations by fusing disparate data sources, tools and teams to accelerate and automate threat detection, investigation and response. When you integrate ThreatQ Platform with Microsoft Entra ID, you can:
- Control in Microsoft Entra ID who has access to ThreatQ Platform.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to ThreatQ Platform with their Microsoft Entra accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location.
You'll configure and test Microsoft Entra single sign-on for ThreatQ Platform in a test environment. ThreatQ Platform supports SP initiated single sign-on and Just In Time user provisioning.
To integrate Microsoft Entra ID with ThreatQ Platform, you need:
- A Microsoft Entra user account. If you don't already have one, you can Create an account for free.
- One of the following roles: Global Administrator, Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator, or owner of the service principal.
- A Microsoft Entra subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
- ThreatQ Platform single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
Add application and assign a test user
Before you begin the process of configuring single sign-on, you need to add the ThreatQ Platform application from the Microsoft Entra gallery. You need a test user account to assign to the application and test the single sign-on configuration.
Add ThreatQ Platform from the Microsoft Entra gallery
Add ThreatQ Platform from the Microsoft Entra application gallery to configure single sign-on with ThreatQ Platform. For more information on how to add application from the gallery, see the Quickstart: Add application from the gallery.
Create and assign Microsoft Entra test user
Follow the guidelines in the create and assign a user account article to create a test user account called B.Simon.
Alternatively, you can also use the Enterprise App Configuration Wizard. In this wizard, you can add an application to your tenant, add users/groups to the app, and assign roles. The wizard also provides a link to the single sign-on configuration pane. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards..
Configure Microsoft Entra SSO
Complete the following steps to enable Microsoft Entra single sign-on.
Browse to Identity > Applications > Enterprise applications > ThreatQ Platform > Single sign-on.
On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.
On the Basic SAML Configuration section, perform the following steps:
a. In the Identifier textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
b. In the Reply URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
c. In the Sign on URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
These values are not real. Update these values with the actual Identifier, Reply URL and Sign on URL. Contact ThreatQ Platform support team to get these values. You can also refer to the patterns shown in the Basic SAML Configuration section.
Your ThreatQ Platform application expects the SAML assertions in a specific format, which requires you to add custom attribute mappings to your SAML token attributes configuration. The following screenshot shows an example for this. The default value of Unique User Identifier is user.userprincipalname but ThreatQ Platform expects this to be mapped with the user's email address. For that you can use user.mail attribute from the list or use the appropriate attribute value based on your organization configuration.
In addition to above, ThreatQ Platform application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response, which are shown below. These attributes are also pre populated but you can review them as per your requirements.
Name Source Attribute uid user.mail Groups user.groups
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (PEM) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.
On the Set up ThreatQ Platform section, copy the appropriate URL(s) based on your requirement.
Configure ThreatQ Platform SSO
To configure single sign-on on ThreatQ Platform side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (PEM) and appropriate copied URLs from the application configuration to ThreatQ Platform support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.
Create ThreatQ Platform test user
In this section, a user called B.Simon is created in ThreatQ Platform. ThreatQ Platform supports just-in-time user provisioning, which is enabled by default. There's no action item for you in this section. If a user doesn't already exist in ThreatQ Platform, a new one is commonly created after authentication.
In this section, you test your Microsoft Entra single sign-on configuration with following options.
Click on Test this application, this will redirect to ThreatQ Platform Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.
Go to ThreatQ Platform Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.
You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the ThreatQ Platform tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to ThreatQ Platform Sign-on URL. For more information, see Microsoft Entra My Apps.
Once you configure ThreatQ Platform you can enforce session control, which protects exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real time. Session control extends from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security.
