PortSight Secure Access Documentation

Authentication in Web Applications

Authentication allows you to restrict access to your application only to authenticated users. The users have to provide their login name and password. PortSight Secure Access provides two ways of authentication:


    Security Note

The password is transferred in an unencrypted form when using the forms authentication. It's recommended that you use the forms authentication together with secured transfer protocol (HTTPS). If you're not sure about how to use HTTPS or how to set it up, please refer to the documentation of the Windows operation system and Microsoft Internet Information Services.


Windows authentication - user must be logged in a domain. The application then uses user's Windows login name and associates it with corresponding account in the Secure Access catalog.
