VASCO DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF
Highly Secure User Authentication for Highly Secure Network Access
DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF provides customers with a secure solution designed to keep corporate users and their applications safe from identity theft.
The DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF uses the secure RACF database and does not require additional servers or storage for the users’ cryptographic data. Users are able to take advantage of RACF fail-over and replication mechanisms like RRSF and coupling facilities.
If the existing system implements high performance and large scale processes, the DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF will be transparent and will not require modification. This ensures the highest quality of service for the most critical environments.
Best of the breed integration
Any subsystem that currently interfaces with RACF can benefit from DIGIPASS Strong Authentication without modification. This includes:
- Teleprocessing Monitors CICS and IMS
- Multi-session tools
- UNIX System Services (LDAP, WebSphere, etc.)
- TCP/IP Applications (Telnet, FTP, etc.)
- Software suites
Unmatched Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF requires no software on end-user workstations or modifications to TSO Applications or Subsystems. If a system is RACF compliant, users can seamlessly switch to using DIGIPASS one-time passwords instead of their less secure static password.
The VASCO solution enables an easy deployment and ensures minimal cost related to software, training and helpdesk.
The cornerstone of a secure system is a central repository of users administered by a single point. Organizations that run multiple authentication servers in heterogeneous environments have encountered ‘ghost’ accounts’ (accounts that are inactive or not linked to a specific user). Each of these ghost accounts is a potential security breach.
The fact that DIGIPASS Plug-In for RACF is embedded within the RACF system means a single point of control for the entire user community. This effectively improves the control and auditing of users.
An extensible model at the lowest cost
DIGIPASS technology not only provides strong authentication, but can be programmed to establish electronic signatures. All users in your organisation may take benefit of a number of features provided from DIGIPASS technology. Please ask your VASCO contact for more information.
