CSP Authenticator+ is a new multi-factor authentication solution for NonStop systems, and supports various authentication methods including RSA SecurID, Email, Text Message and Google Authenticator. CSP Authenticator+ resides on the NonStop Platform and uses an OSS “bridge” to connect via a RESTful interface to the CSP Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) service. Almost any application, including TACL, can now easily support multi-factor authentication, which is a key compliance requirement.
CSP Authenticator+ can be used in various ways to provide authentication services:
Safeguard Authentication SEEP
In this mode, all login attempts by Guardian users that are normally processed against Safeguard are instead passed to the Authenticator agent, which in turn sends the login request to CSP’s MFA System. Based on a user’s configuration, CSP Authenticator+ may return prompts for RSA token value or issue other challenges such as an Email or SMS OTP.
Pathway or Non-Pathway servers
In this mode, login attempts through an application, including a Pathway application, are passed to the Authenticator+ agent, which in turn sends the login request to the CSP MFA system for secondary authentication.
