SSO Functionality (Universal SSO: Non-Intrusive Representation Input Method)

SSOcube provides the Enterprise SSO functionality not only for Web applications, but also for various types of applications including terminal emulator for mainframes that work on a Windows client machine. Many SSO software products support Web applications only, by providing application programming interfaces (API) that enables customization for the SSO functionality. As such, Web-SSO products require custom development which can increase complexity of implementation and support.
Whereas, SSOcube automates the presentation of IDs and passwords, and it also does not require source code changes of target applications. The agent software that communicates with SSOcube recognizes various login screens on the PC and it then enters the user IDs and passwords automatically. By this mechanism, Enterprise SSO can be achieved, and can be readily applied to many applications. Thus, SSOcube provides Enterprise SSO not only for Web applications, but also for other types of C/S applications that run on Windows, including IBM Notes, Acrobat Connect, ERP applications, and terminal emulators for IBM and Fujitsu and other mainframe servers.
Screen transformation for each target application must first be ‘trained’, and this enables ENTERPRISE SSO for various applications. Configuration files for many different applications and training related information will be available from NetSpring’s website. End-User customers can take advantage of this resource for rapid deployment.

All-in-One ESSO Functionality (SSO hub)

SSOcube offers all the necessary functionalities such as Enterprise SSO, 3rd party Multi-Function authentication, user account management and systems management. As a standalone Enterprise SSO box, it enables organizations to deploy SSO immediately. In order to mitigate security vulnerability, SSOcube adopts patent proven authentication technologies from i-Sprint combined with server technologies from NetSpring.

◆ SSO functionality: AccessMatrix(R) product suite (i-Sprint, headquartered in Singapore)
◆ Authentication server: AXIOLE (NetSpring, headquartered in Tokyo) subset version

By integrating the above two products, SSOcube is able to offer other various features related to Enterprise SSO. SSOcube will be include features such as authentication by Microsoft Active Directory (AD) , IC cards, smart cards, mobile phones and biometrics and can serve as a SSO hub for the organization.
Additionally, SSOcube can leverage NetSpring’s authentication server appliance, AXIOLE as an external user repository and provide Enterprise SSO functionality to NetSpring’s authentication gateway product, FEREC.

With assistance from ID Networks (headquartered in Tokyo: with extensive technical expertise in AccessMatrix(R), NetSpring provides technical support not only for small to medium size enterprises using SSOcube, but also for large enterprise which requires systems integration.

Other Features of SSOcube

◆ Easy deployment, easy management
All the necessary functionalities for Enterprise SSO are already embedded in SSOcube. Users can rapidly deploy Enterprise SSO with minimal configuration without selection and/or assessment of Enterprise SSO functionalities. Configuration and management can be done through a web browser. Administrators do not have to install OS or special software on their PCs. Import and changes of user IDs and passwords can also be done through web browser. ID management, SSO all together in SSOcube. Processing backup of user data, configuration data and other systems data can also be done as part of the All-in-One package.

◆ Strong-Authentication or 2FA server
The matrix authentication mechanism optionally available in SSOcube can be used instead of a password, however, it can also be added to enhance password authentication. It is possible to selectively set for each user account, if 3rd party authentication is needed. Additional authentication methods such as biometrics and smart cards also be supported on this platform.

◆ Use of External User Repository
SSOcube has a user repository (LDAP) to manage user account information for standalone use, however, it is also possible to point to the external LDAP authentication servers including NetSpring’s AXIOLE and Microsoft’s Active Directory(R).

◆ Application Access Control
SSOcube offers access control features for each application based on user / group.

◆ Audit Trails / Logs
SSOcube can generate report logs that details applications accessed and when. This audit feature together with application access control enables SSOcube to improve productivity and ease of use while enhancing IT controls and policies inside the organization.

◆ "100 - 3000" account tiered models offers suitability of use by medium size company / departmental use
SSOcube offers a family of serveral models, from 100 account users package up to 3000 account users capacities. (Please contacs us if 3001 or more accounts required)
