About WSTrust - instant SSO solution
Daily and often repeated authentication into many information systems bothers users and causes considerable financial losses. The need to maintain and use multiple user names and passwords leads to a reduction in safety and causes further costs. With WSTrust client for Android, Instant SSO Solution, user need to authenticate only once, by entering name and password valid in company/institution LDAP capable directory. Any other IS, portal, proxy, self developed or simply client/server solution can share user identity via various interfaces of WSTrust. Your developer can integrate WSTrust within one working day. Your administrator can deploy server and clients within one working day as well.
What is WSTrust?
WSTrust is real SSO solution which detects and provides the identity of network users based on their authentication to eDirectory/Active Directory or their direct authentication against LDAP thru WSTrust clients provided (Android, Linux, Mac, iPad/iPhone, Playbook). Once a user is authenticated, WSTrust verifies his/her identity and keeps the information about the IP address and full name of the user. If the user then tries to connect to some information system, the identity is checked by querying WSTrust based on IP address. If the user is known, no further authentication is required. This approach is more effective and safer than the way it works e.g. with the Internet browser that stores names and passwords, which have been used for authentication.
Deployment within a working day
WSTrust server is pure JAVA application which needs nothing more than JVM on Linux or Windows and LDAP interface of Edirectory/Active Directory or simply a LDAP capable directory. Whole installation is completed in less than a minute thanks to a comfortable installation script/msi package. WSTrust client for Windows workstations is provided as msi package and can be deployed manually or automatically by solution like ZENworks. Android client is available for download thru Google Play. Clients are provided free of charge.
SSO integration within a working day
Virtually any application can be integrated with WSTrust SSO. WSTrust provides HTML REST interface, comfortable API library for „unique user ID“ and maintenance of NetworkAddress LDAP attribute as well as interactive administrator interface. Full integration is provided for CAS from JASIG and for Security module of popular Spring framework. If Your application is using Spring Security, like LifeRay portal e.g., the integration is included already. Other integrated systems are - GWAVA, Retain, eHD, MediaWiki, Vibe, Data Synchronizer, Moodle etc (refer to www.wstrust.com)
Users do not have to remember dozens of usernames and passwords, so do not endanger security by writing them on pieces of paper stuck to your monitor.
It is not necessary to synchronize the login data between systems with different levels of security and threaten the security by leakage from the less secure systems.
No further waste of time and money - users can access network systems instantly, authentication is not necessary as well as regular maintenance of usernames and passwords
WSTrust is licensed only by the number of users. Number of applications and systems that you integrate with WSTrust is unlimited. Integration support is provided for some widespread systems directly by TDP or in collaboration with their respective suppliers (see list of integrated technologies).
