Increase Your Logon Security!

Increase your security by adding a second factor to the login at the Univention Corporate Server (UCS). This way you prevent rogue access to your network and your data. At the same time you can create an audit of the allowed access events and stop simple password sharing between employees.

With the privacyIDEA Authentication System you can cope with any of your workflows - how complex it may be. Ranging from a few to hundreds of thousands of users.

How this App Works

This app adds a plugin to the UCS Single Sign-On Identity Provider (IdP). It communicates with the privacyIDEA Server in your network, which you can run on any other Linux distribution. The login still happens on the UCS IdP, but credentials are passed to the privacyIDEA Server via a lean REST API.

The privacyIDEA SAML plugin can either add a second factor to the Login at the UCS IdP or completely replace both factors on the UCS IdP.

This app requires a running privacyIDEA Authentication System in your network!

Your Own Central Multi-Factor-Authentication System

The privacyIDEA Authentication System runs on-premises on any Linux distribution. Easy installation is possible on Ubuntu LTS systems.
