privacyIDEA Credential Provider
privacyIDEA Credential Provider version 2.5
Today we release the version 2.5 of the privacyIDEA Credential Provider. The privacyIDEA Credential Provider requires a user to login to the Windows desktop or terminal server using a 2nd factor. The user could use his smartphone with a smartphone app, a one time password token, a Yubikey or Nitrokey to authenticate. As an alternative the authentication backend can also send an Email or text message, containing a one time code, to the user for login.

The usage of unicode in the resolver config with Oracle databases was fixes. A better error handling in the code for Hardware Security Modules makes this usage even more reliable.
AUTHENTICATOR

In addition it allows for a secure enrollment process. The secret key of the app can not be easily copied during enrollment.
Update
privacyIDEA 2.22 allows flexible Authentication at VPNs and Firewalls
With privacyIDEA 2.22 we added the possibility to pass more useful userinformation to a RADIUS client like a VPN. The administrator can add a policy to include the resolver and the realm of a user who authenticated successfully. This response data can then be used in the FreeRADIUS plugin and modified by regular expressions to add any arbitrary RADIUS attribute in the RADIUS response, which then would be sent to the VPN. This additional information can be used by Cisco ASA, Citrix Netscaler or any other enterprise grade VPN to put the user into certain subnets or to assign resource to the user.
