ARP-AUTH    Two Factor Authentication for the IBM i


ARP-AUTH is a software only solution for Two Factor Authentication on the IBM i.   Two Factor Authentication is an approach to authentication which requires the presentation of at least of the three authentication factors:


Knowledge Factor (something only the user knows)

Possession Factor (something only the has)

Inherence Factor (something only the user is)


Traditionally solutions for Two Factor Authentication were cost prohibitive for IBM i users as solutions required expensive smart cards or tokens.   With ARP-AUTH you can now use smart phones or tablets as the possession factor in Two Factor Authentication and unlike cards or tokens, you can use phones or tablets to trigger hacker alerts.


ARP-AUTH is built upon the ARP-SMS software stack and has a fully configurable security panel for defining the rules of how Two Factor Authentication will behave on your system.   The configuration rules include when to require Two Factor Authentication (e.g. after hours, for privileged user profiles, users outside the network, etc.) as well as the number of phone numbers to attach to users and the method for communicating PINs (text or voice message).   


When you attempt to log in you will receive a PIN via SMS.   Once you successfully enter the PIN you will complete your authentication process on the IBM i.   Unlike other vendors, ARP-AUTH allows you to truly use your smartphone or tablet as a SMART SECURITY DEVICE because when you receive an unwanted PIN when someone is trying to log in as you, you can reply via your smartphone and a hacker shutdown process can commence.   ARP-AUTH will actually treat replies to PINs as a signal and you have options for shutting down the potential hacker including blocking IP addresses, disabling profiles and sending alerts to security teams.
