Add Transaction-Level Strong User Authentication to Web Apps

March 26, 2009 10:30 AM

Valid Tech earned the Ready for IBM Tivoli validation for the integration of the VSSA Strong Biometric User Authentication solution with IBM Tivoli Identity Manager and IBM Tivoli Access Manager. Companies that leverage Tivoli Security and WebSEAL can now add transaction-level strong user authentication without the time and expense of modifying application source codes. 

“Companies have huge investments in existing applications, but many are in dire need of strong user authentication,” said Valid Tech CEO Greg Faust.  “Now they can secure web-based transactions without touching the source code of their applications.  This will help banking, government and countless other customers meet regulatory needs and cut fraud loss.  The savings and operating efficiencies deliver a very high ROI.” 

The solution takes advantage of features in Tivoli Access Manager and WebSEAL that can monitor the flow of web-based applications and apply authorization and authentication rules to specified processes.  The integration fulfills user authentication requests with a call to VSSA biometric strong user authentication.  Each transaction is enabled via junctions created at the WebSEAL server.  No application source code changes are required and junctions are easily enabled and modified by the customer.

Now a single VSSA enablement with Tivoli extends the benefits to Tivoli logons and an unlimited number of web applications. (A diagram of the integration process flow is below).  Applications and logons not protected by WebSEAL can also benefit from VSSA through use of the standard VSSA Application Enablement Toolkit.

This integration is available immediately. More information is available at www.validtech.com or in the IBM OPAL Catalog at http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/opal?NavCode=1TW10AM36
