What is Authentication?

Authentication is the process of identifying the user and making sure that they are who they say they are.  This is a key security consideration - only the real users should be allowed to use the system and any attempts to "break in" should be denied.

Authentication also identifies the user, this is important to mSuite as the software that the user is given, the settings sent to their device and all the other configuration information is based on identifying them correctly.

mSuite comes with a variety of authentication methods built into the product.  If your organization has other requirements, our professional services team are happy to build custom authentication methods.

mSuite has four standard authentication methods:

mCenter (mSuite's internal authentication) - the credentials submitted from the mobile device are compared with the Account Name and mCenter Password on the user's Properties dialog.
RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) - the credentials submitted from the mobile device are compared with the user's RADIUS credentials.
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) - can be used for Active Directory authentication.  The credentials submitted from the mobile device are compared with the user's credentials as stored on an LDAP server.
Internet Password - the password from the device is compared to the Internet Password stored on the user's person record in the Domino Directory.  This is the default authentication method.  It is the only method that supports user self registration.

 

Configuring Authentication

This is carried out by configuring the Authentication Server.
