Today’s government agencies and corporate enterprises require increasingly stronger authentication and authorization capabilities to strictly regulate access to highly confidential data.
Whether it’s a government agency mandated to support PIV (HSPD 12), or a corporate site implementing the latest advances in access control technology, the use of major smartcard
and digital certificate
formats is becoming a standard in the world’s most secure IT environments. Lieberman Software’s Enterprise Random Password Manager
and Random Password Manager (E/RPM)
products allow customers to manually enroll client certificates, transparently verify certificates on smartcards, and configure rights and privileges for certificates from directly within the E/RPM console.
This capability enables E/RPM to identify who is logging on and to control what that user can access via digital certificates rather than, or even in conjunction with, a user name and password. In some environments, the possession of a smartcard and its PIN code is all that is necessary to logon to E/RPM.
When a user logs on to E/RPM’s web interface with the certificate authentication enabled, the browser and web site cause the user to select an appropriate certificate to gain access to E/RPM – and to the powerful privileged account passwords
secured by the products. The digital certificates can optionally be stored on the local machine, a USB drive or on a smartcard.
