On-demand Authentication

Dynamic Seed Provisioning

The On-demand Authenticator


A new credentialing method introduced in RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 Requires no hardware or software token

Zero footprint authenticator Delivers one-time tokencode to a users cell phone or e-mail User initiated through a Self Service web module

On-demand Authenticators utilize e-mail or SMS delivery

What is SMS?

Short Message Service


Text messaging Provides a secure connectionless delivery method to an already ubiquitously deployed device the mobile phone Recognized standard and widely available worldwide RSA has formed a relationship with an SMS aggregator Clickatell

It is estimated that worldwide, the number of SMS-capable handsets will exceed 2 billion in 2008 Portio Research

Authentication Manager 7.1

Scenario: Employee working remotely needs access to network via VPN

Applications Enabled with On-demand Authentication

Mobile Employees
The Challenge: Supporting a diverse base of growing users

Contractors
The Challenge: Finding a secure way to issue and manage credentials to temporary workers The Resolution: Ondemand is a zero footprint authenticator. No more hardware tokens to recover at the end of a contractor assignment

Business Continuity
The Challenge: Maintaining strong security during a business disruption The Resolution: Ondemand stands up a self service module to rapidly on-board users and deploy On-demand credentials in the event of an emergency

The Resolution: Ondemand provides a 24x7 method for supporting occasional workers without issuing hardware or software tokens to every employee

Dynamic Seed Provisioning


Utilizes industry-standard Cryptographic Token Key Initiation Protocol (CT-KIP)

Published as IETF Internet-Draft (RFC 4758)

A client-server protocol that enables more rapid setup of software tokens.


No seed file needs to be sent over the network to the remote user.

This makes the deployment of software tokens smoother and shorten deployment times.
