NetKnights will again be exhibiting at the business fair it-sa in Nuremberg this year.

From October 8th to 10th 2019, the who-is-who of German and international IT security providers will meet at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre. Visitors will have the opportunity to get first-hand information about innovations and roadmaps of the security products.

NetKnights will be co-exhibiting with ownCloud in Hall 10.0, Stand 412. There we will present the multi-factor authentication system privacyIDEA, which can extend ownCloud in corporate environments by various second factors and thus reliably protect your business-critical data. Once rolled out in your company, privacyIDEA also allows secure login to other web applications, remote login, VPN, desktops and terminal servers…

Drop us a note and set up a meeting to discuss, how privacyIDEA can help to increase logon security in your network.

In September the anual ownCloud Conference is held in Nuremberg, Germany. There companies that use ownCloud, developers from the community or ownCloud partners meet to hear about new developments and plans and to exchange their experiences.

ownCloud is an important partner to NetKnights. The privacyIDEA ownCloud Plugin is a stable software, which allows to enhance ownCloud with many different types of two factor authentication. A lot of companies and customers are using this privacyIDEA component, to protect the web access to their ownCloud installation.

Talk and stand

NetKnights will have a stand, a demo point where you can take a look at ownCloud in combination with privacyIDEA, check the different two factor mechnisms and ask us all your questions about 2FA with ownCloud.

We will also present new features like authenticating at ownCloud with the new privacyIDEA Push Token. In this case, after the user has authenticated with his username and password at the ownCloud Web UI, he gets a notification on his smartphone, which he simply has to confirm and then he will be logged in.

 

Cornelius Kölbel will also give a talk about this topic on September 18th. And he will also show, how the Push Token mechanism can be combined with any other two factor authentication mechanism in privacyIDEA like HOTP, TOTP, Yubikey, Email, SMS…

Ask us, if you already have questions upfront or if you want to make up an appointment at the ownCloud Conference.

NetKnights GmbH will attend the business fair and conference it-sa this year in October. Being a partner at the stand of ownCloud in Hall 10.0-428, NetKnights places its core competence of Multi Factor Authentication just at the right spot. Keeping your own data under your control is the job of ownCloud. Securing the access to that data is the job of NetKnights and the privacyIDEA ownCloud App. It allows a flexible, enterprise grade two factor authentication at the File Sync And Share solution from ownCloud.

New features in privacyIDEA

Within the privacyIDEA Authentication Server there are a lot of interesting new features.

We will present the upcoming version 2.23 of privacyIDEA. Two of the innovative new features are the Pre-Event-Handler and Monitoring and Statistics.

The administrator can use the Pre-Event-Handler to add additional task before e.g. an authentication request is processed. These tasks and the conditions can be configured completely flexible. The administrator could configure privacyIDEA this way, that before authenticating a user, this very user gets an Email token enrollend and assigned – without user or admin interaction. This is only one possible scenario to use the Pre-Event-Handler.

The Monitoring and Statsitics module can use data from the Event Counter and use periodic tasks to gather any possible metrics. Within a blink of an eye the administrator can define, which data he wants to collect and e.g. create a metric of failed authentication requests. External tools like Grafana can then be used to create graphs.

We continue to strive making privacyIDEA one of the most flexible Multi Factor Authentication systems in the market.
