New Script! – RDP Proxy Link Builder

Most of you know I work for a particular Privileged Account Security company. It’s sort of hard to unplug for your job when you really love what you do. With that said, sometimes when I’m off the clock, I’ll still work on some pet projects. This is one of them. In CyberArk’s Enterprise Password Vault version 9.7, they introduced a really cool new feature. Privilege Session Manager Remote Desktop Proxy. SysAdmins typically push back on any security control because they tend to introduce hurdles in their day to day operations. Security shouldn’t hinder operations as they’ll tend to be avoided or even worse yet, circumvented.  So PSMRDPP was developed to allow for Privilege Sessions to be initiated without having to authenticate and logon to the web interface. Using native RDP tools, you can access your privileged accounts. It’s really cool!

Anyways, I developed a script to build out the RDP links automatically that interface with the PSM Proxy server. It also works with Devolutions Remote Desktop Manager Sorry, only works in the paid version. They crippled the powershell functionality in the free version. Anyways, I’ve put the script up on GitHub. I’m going to continue to improve on the script, but for now you’re welcome to use it. It works great!
