Are you planning an authentication project but don't know where to start? To deliver an effective security solution based on PKI and certificates, you'll need the right tools and platform in place to ensure your security solution performs as it was intended.
SecMaker offers seven Start-Up packages designed to help your organization get the right start with your authentication project. In addition to the Start-Up Packages, we also offer programs for training on specific features.
Preparatory workshop on card implementation, Start-Up package #1
The full one-day package offers an introduction to IT security based on PKI and certificates. The workshop results in a basic requirement specification for the introduction of Net iD and strong two factor authentication into your organization.
Proof-Of-Concept, Start-Up package #2
The package provides a Proof-of-Concept installation, for login with certificates based on Net iD Enterprise and Microsoft Certificate Authority for up to five users.
The Start-Up Package includes a 90-day demo licence for Net iD Enterprise, 5 smart cards and 5 card readers. Also included is 30 days of free support and remote support to verify the solution in the target environment. Support for the implemented function is handled through a support agreement.
Citrix session roaming, Start-Up #3
The package is a complete service offering for the installation of Net iD Enterprise with support for session roaming in a Citrix-based target environment.
Support for the implemented function is handled through a support agreement.
Two factor authentication based on third party certificates, Start-Up package #4
The package is a complete service offering for the implementation of a smart card-based login,
Net iD Enterprise and third-party certificates.
Microsoft CA and certificate based login in operating environment, Start-Up #5
The package is a complete service offering for getting started with smart card-based login,
Net iD Enterprise, and Microsoft Certificate Authority in operating environments.
Start-Up Package 5 is also available as a “small business-version” with more basic contents.
Setup of Net iD Portal, Start-Up #6
The package contains everything you need to get the Net iD Portal up and running, for simplified administration of smart cards, certificates and users in your organization.
As an extra option, we offer:
Setup of Net iD Transport, Start-Up #7
The package provides a complete solution for automated and secure file management using
Net iD Transport.
As an extra option, we can also establish customized certificate issuance.
As a complement to our more comprehensive Start-Up Packages, we also offer packages focused on specific areas of use.
Smart card login in existing Citrix environment
These features are based on Start-Up Package #4 – Smart card login based on third-party certificates, supplemented with support for configuration of smart card support in Citrix environments.
The Card Watch feature initiates a sequence of predetermined actions when users insert or remove their cards from the card reader. Card Watch is most commonly used on shared computers where users have the same login to the computer but individual logins for applications.
When the card is removed, the user is logged out from all applications and processes, which are then closed down in the proper sequence. This offers much more flexibility than what is possible with Microsoft operating system settings. Similarly, applications and processes can be started up when the user inserts their card in the reader.
Workstation Lock Down Smart Card Shell
The Workstation Lock Down feature enables full lockdown of Windows clients, with unlocking only via smart cards and certificates. This solution is most commonly used on shared workstations or workstations with high security requirements.
When the user inserts the smart card in the card reader, the client verifies certificate contents and performs the configured actions. As soon as the card is removed from the card reader, the client re-enters full lockdown.
Fast User Switching
This feature enables fast user switching in Windows. Fast User Switching is much appreciated in organizations where employees share workstations with one or more colleagues and need quick and simple access to their personal configurations and information.
