Cautious Modifications for Added Application and User Security
Bremen, November 17, 2015. With Version 4.1, Univention is now equipping its server operating and management platform Univention Corporate Server (UCS) with new important features for even more secure and convenient use. For example, in order to guarantee even higher security and separation in operation, the App Center integrated in UCS now also supports apps which use the container technology Docker. Manufacturers of applications available in the App Center also benefit from the global single sign-on mechanism recently integrated in UCS, which can be rendered even more secure via the use of two-factor authentication. The self-service mechanisms whereby users can reset their passwords autonomously are another particular highlight.
Version 4.1 of Univention Corporate Server supports Docker Apps from within the App Center. However, firstly lets have a look back on how the App Center has developed over the last years to better explain the reasons why we decided to support Docker. Afterwards, we will have a quick look at the technical details of the implementation within UCS before discussing what the advantages for app vendors and, most importantly, users are. Lastly, I will be happy to give a quick peek into what the future has in store for the App Center.
In order to be able to guarantee the seamless integration of apps in the identity management system provided by UCS even more proficiently, we have now implemented a single sign-on for UCS function in Version 4.1. of Univention Corporate Server. Single sign-on allows a user who has authenticated himself once on an identity provider to use a wide variety of other services without the need to sign on to each of these additional services individually.
We are pleased to announce the availability of UCS 4.0-4 for download, the fourth point release of Univention Corporate Server 4.0.
It includes all errata updates issued for the previous version 4.0-3. Beside various enhancements and bugfixes, it contains important improvements with regard to the Active Directory compatibility and the UCS management system.
The new app Zarafa Web Meetings is an integration in the Zarafa WebApp to enable direct communication with one or more persons. This communication can be in the form of a video call in HD audio and video quality, as a presentation via your own monitor, in the form of sending a file or simply via chat.
The latest version of the groupware Zarafa 7.1.14 for UCS 3.2 and 4.0 is now available in the Univention App Center. Its solution for the synchronization with mobile end devices, Z-Push, is now also updated to version 2.2.5.
Next to improvements of the software itself, this update offers comprehensive improvements as to the integration in UCS.
