Facilitate Your Work by Integrating Listener Modules in UCS

Graphic Listen to me!

Listener modules support you in your administrative work by synchronizing and controlling all changes in the UCS’ OpenLDAP Einacross all connected services – Learn how to build and use them!

You are surely using a variety of (cloud) services in your organization and, if required, these services will make changes to your directory service, either Active Directory or OpenLDAP. In heterogeneous environments, where UCS is typically used, the question is, how can service A notice the changes that service B has made to certain objects in the directory, and that are relevant to both services? For example, when a new printer has been added to the network, and has joined the UCS domain, the list of printers is updated in the configuration file of the printer service (CUPS) and the service reloaded.

Brief Introduction: Two-Factor Authentication

Fingerprint authentication
As part of our “Brief introduction” series, you will learn today what is meant by two-factor authentication.

If you are planning to use security software, you will surely stumble upon this term, as this method provides additional protection for your business when it comes to login processes, especially for data-sensitive areas. Often enough, it has happened in the past that the identities and associated passwords of users from, for example, large mail providers like Yahoo were stolen. As users often use the same password for different services, there is a risk that the criminals use the stolen data to gain access to other services, thus causing great damage. Securing user authentication against sensitive areas or business-used services not only by requesting a password but also through a second authentication, data breaches become much more difficult for attackers.

Brief Introduction: Samba / Microsoft Active Directory

Get a brief understanding about the software Samba and Microsoft Active Directory – two solutions for the central detection and authorization of domain members. These are important features as the central administration of a domain network helps to achieve more data protection and higher failure security for your IT systems.

Learn also more about how UCS is able to bridge the gap between the Linux world and the Windows world so that you can reap the benefits of both systems.

Univention Corporate Server 4.2 Released: Improved Operating Concept and lots of New Technology under the Hood

Univention Management Console in UCS 4.2
The most striking new feature of the Univention Corporate Server 4.2 release is the significantly further developed operating concept for all users – not only for the administrators, but also for the end users. In addition to new features such as the online portal, this is due to the smoother interface, faster ways to overview deployed resources and improvements in the management system.

In the past months, our development department has worked intensively on bringing all the important UCS components to the latest state-of-the-art.

Digitalization Package for Schools with Integrated E-Mail and Collaboration Functions

Logo Ucs@school und OX
As a leading provider of Open Source-based IT infrastructure solutions, we have now “bundled” a new digitalization package for schools, in the knowledge that only secure, flexible, and user-friendly solutions allow the modernization of the IT infrastructure in education so desperately desired by politicians. To this end, we have comprehensively expanded our special solution tailored to the requirements of education authorities, UCS@school, with groupware functions and the web-based office suite from Open-Xchange. The new software package was also on show at this year’s CeBIT.

It supports schools in their digitalization, and we are delighted that the city of Basel, Switzerland, is already implementing it in a pilot project for 20,000 users.

Release Candidate of UCS 4.2 Now Available

Mockup Portal UCS 4.2

Today, we have published the Release Candidate UCS 4.2. Highlight of the release is the new, freely configurable online portal, which you can flexibly adapt to your needs and the one of your organization. Further, a lot less obvious changes we have made are: We have updated the distribution base of UCS to Debian 8 (Jessie) and we have now made natively available a large part of the Debian packages. Hence, we can provide important security and product updates much faster than ever before.

We will release UCS 4.2 beginning of April 2017. Everyone who is curious to know more about UCS 4.2 can see a live demonstration of the Release Candidate at the CeBIT in hall 3 / booth D36-620 till Friday this week.

Creating Trusts between UCS Samba/AD and Native Microsoft Active Directory Domains

Logo Samba, Sprechblase "what do you think"

In this article we would like to inform all IT administrators and IT-interested people about the possibilities of a trust between two domains (UCS Samba/AD and Microsoft AD). To set up a trust is to give users of one domain access to the resources of another. This can increase the scope for actions in some situations!

In our example, we will specifically refer to the interaction between Samba in UCS and Microsoft Windows, explaining in detail how a so-called trust relationship can be configured and informing about the current state of implementation.
