Included in OpenInsight 10.0 and above, the OpenInsight Authentication Module (OAM) builds upon the standard OpenInsight security processes and provides additional enhanced industry standard security processes.
The module provides support for login policies including the locking out of users after a definable number of unsuccessful attempts, password construction requirements, etc. As you would expect, the sensitive data for policy and user information is stored in AES encrypted records.
In addition, the OAM records (“journals”) successful and unsuccessful login attempts, changes to policies and changes to user information. Administrators will configure login policies, and set up user information, for all applications that require this enhanced security. End users will log into enhanced security applications twice – once via the normal OpenInsight log in process, and then through the enhanced security screen. If desired, administrators can hard code the password and application name (in the desktop “shortcut”) to remove the end user requirement of logging in via the normal OpenInsight log in process, or – should the network infrastructure support it – Revelation Software recommends that OpenInsight Single Sign-On (SSO) is also enabled for thes systems.
