SECUDE’s Secure Login Client Version 5.0 Enables Windows 7 Support

The need for an easy single, yet secure, login procedure has always been an elusive issue for many big organizations

Security Journal on Ulitzer

The need for an easy single, yet secure, login procedure has always been an elusive issue for many big organizations. Multiple user names and passwords, multiple logins, and the ensuing confusion and frustration consume much of a user's productivity in terms of time and energy.

Secure Login
Secure Login provides secure Single Sign-On and total landscape encryption for SAP supporting a variety of different authentication mechanisms including Active Directory, LDAP, SAP-ID, RADIUS, RSA SecurID®, SQL DB, and even smart cards.

Secure Login is tightly integrated into SAP by making use of its Secure Network Communications (SNC) framework and by fully supporting SAP's Cryptographic Library (SAPCryptolib) which means that no third party or SECUDE components need to be installed on the SAP server. However, SECUDE also provides its own cryptographic library which has some advanced features the SAP library does not have.

Secure Login is based on industry standards such as X.509 and Kerberos, and supports all available SAP user interfaces including SAPGUI, Enterprise Portal, Business Explorer, Business Objects and others.

Secure Login's benefits are obvious in terms of cost reduction due to the elimination of multiple SAP passwords, thus reducing help desk calls from users and in increased productivity due to no interruption by repeated username/password dialogs.

New Features and Their Benefits
The new Secure Login Client 5.0 adds the following new features and benefits:

  • Support for Microsoft Windows 7: Windows 7 in 32bit and 64bit is supported in this version.
  • Ability to hide/replace SECUDE logo in clients' UI: This ability allows customized branding of the Secure Login Client as it is now possible to replace or completely hide the SECUDE logo in GUI allowing the client to look like a corporate (internal) application.
  • Ability to completely hide the SECUDE client from the end user: This feature allows the Secure Login Client icon in the system tray to be turned off for even better transparency.
  • Ability to allow optional automatic enrollment when the Secure Login Client starts: It is possible to perform an automatic enrollment for Secure Login security profiles when the Secure Login Client is started. This feature enables Secure Login support for Internet Explorer without further manual login and without integration of the Secure Login ActiveX into the Webpage.
  • Customization of SNC error messages: Through this feature, all error messages shown by Secure Login Client's error message dialog during SNC negotiation can now be customized.

Compatibility
Secure Login Client 5.0 is fully compatible to Secure Login 4.x which means a mixed environment of 4.2 and 5.0 clients is possible.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
