1. Overview
Enterprise SSO Advanced Login is the authentication module of the Enterprise SSO (E-SSO) suite. It enables speedy implementation of connection procedures using authentication mechanisms with physical tokens (smart cards, USB keys, RFID badges) and biometrics, in addition to the standard authentication methods of login/password.

1.1 Advanced Login Usage


Enterprise SSO Advanced Login is used to implement strong authentication in the following scenarios of use: Authentication with smart cards or USB keys with Windows workstations, without any need to deploy a PKI compatible with Windows Active Directory certificates. Authentication using non-Windows methods, such as biometrics. Authentication of users through an enterprise directory, which is not part of the Windows network. Authentication with RFID badges.

1.2 Operating Modes


Enterprise SSO Advanced Login can be configured either in one of the following modes: Client/server mode: users are directly authenticated in Enterprise SSO Console, the advanced access control module. Standalone mode: users are directly authenticated in Active Directory or in any other supported LDAP directories.
