This blog describes the implementation of AITC’s IAM extension for thick-client application. Thick-clients are those applications, which are installed on end-user’s system and user login to the application by providing credentials. Most famous application of this sort is Microsoft’s Outlook.

AITC has developed configurable SSO utility in two formats as follows:
- Agent Based Thick-Client SSO
- Chrome Plugin based Thick-Client SSO

Agent Based Thick-Client SSO is installed on end-user’s system. End-user is required to login to validate OpenIAM credentials and configure Thick-Client which are available for enabling thick-client SSO.
Pre-Conditions:
- Valid identity credentials in OpenIAM
- Valid credentials for end-point application
- Application should be configured for SSO

How it works:
Basically, agent gets installed in end-user’s system and configured for valid SSO application. User has to provide app credentials for activating SSO.
On system startup, user is asked to login using OpenIAM credentials. On successful login, automatic SSO is enabled on system. As soon as user tries to open SSO enabled application, agent detect the application, fill the credentials as per configuration and submit.

Also, this agent comes with a utility which helps end-user to configure new thick-client which are not configured already. This agent is helpful in-case users are having multiple credentials for one identity for different application and need to access application on frequent basis.

Important:
- Application credentials are stored on OpenIAM repository.
- App credentials can be configured as login credentials of OpenIAM or any specific attributes like Outlook would need login name as email-address attribute of the user.
- This is system-tray based agent.
This utility manages application without any interface in OpenIAM and configuration & credentials are not required to configure again in-case change in laptop or system.

Chrome Plugin based Thick-Client SSO is plugin-based thick-client SSO. This type of SSO scheme is used in the environment where end-user is required to login in OpenIAM for accessing thick-client app.
Now days’ enterprises are using web-based & thick-client based applications. So managing SSO for both type of application becomes cumbersome. To address this issues, chrome plugin based Thick-client SSO gives better solution.

Pre-Conditions:
- Valid credentials for OpenIAM
- Resource should be assigned to end-user to access the application
- Credentials should be mapped to Identity’s attribute

How it works:
User login in the Selfservice of OpenIAM, navigate to “My Application”. If user has thick app is assigned, application icon becomes visible. On click, application is started on end-user application, user-credentials are filled and submitted for application access.
In this, there is no configuration is required on client application and only chrome extension performs all activities to enable SSO on thick client.

Important:
- This is installed on end-user’s system as chrome extension
- JEE application is deployed on server for SSO
- Few registry updates are required.

Why Identity Access and Management is required in Information Security

Why Identity Access and Management is required in Information Security?

Nowadays, companies are securing users who are accessing applications from various places through variety of devices, and all this is pressurizing IAM i.e., identity and access management systems. Additionally, consumers expect easy authentication and access to all accounts and information. Moreover, identity infrastructure faces traditional challenge of various links to multiple targets and sources. All this creates an unmanageable “n-squared” problem.

N-squared problem is reason of rapid adoption of federation standards including Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), OpenID connect and OAuth. These technologies include things such as next-generation firewalls, applications monitoring systems and sandboxing systems that permit any malicious code to be executed and all that without harming corporate environment.

One of the other main reasons behind IAM as top security initiative is that it enables right individuals to access right information and resources at right time and reason as well. It ensures appropriate access of resources across heterogeneous technology environments. IAM is important for any enterprise, because it is business-aligned. Organizations that can develop IAM capabilities can reduce identity management costs and become significantly more agile to support new business initiatives.

On the ending note, its various features make it top security initiative and its investment has grown from 7% to 10% in 2014, and is still growing.

Alleviate IoT Innovation for next generation

The two newly launched products by Alleviate IT consultancy namely, UBeacon and UWiFi, are taking world by the storm. These two products have their own features and functionalities. The letter “U” in both these products means universal. On the cusp of discussion about these products,

AITC IoT Innovation

what is UBeacon and UWiFi? UBeacon, name for Apple’s technology standard, allows mobile apps to analyze signals from beacons and react accordingly. It also permits mobile apps to understand customer position and on this basis, it sends hyper-contextual content to users.

UBeacon uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication technology. BLE is a personal wireless area network technology to transmit data over short distances. As clear from name, it’s designed for low cost and minimal energy consumption, while maintaining a communication range. BLE communication contains small packets of data or “Advertisements” which are broadcast or sent at a regular interval by Beacons.

Now coming to UWiFi, UWiFi is a serial-to-WiFi device server that allows installed serial devices to connect with Internet via their existing serial port. It acts as a security gap between the network and host application. It supports up to 10 simultaneously active TCP/UDP sockets, provides one secure SSL3/TLS1 socket and two listening sockets. Apart from this, UWiFi eliminates the need of any hardware modifications to the host device.

On the ending note, hope to get more these kinds of products from Alleviate IT Consultancy.
