Forget about unsafe passwords: With regularly changing one-time passwords, access to your servers and systems will be protected in the best possible way. Optimally implement this access with TeleSec OneTimePass. Only authorized persons have access to your network. Using one-time passwords is far better than traditional password solutions. Chipcards and offline reading devices or other hardware tokens keep application simple and further increase security.
The password prevents unauthorized access
Do you want to limit the use of your services to a specific group of people, e.g., to your business partners or field service staff? Then secure user identification or authentication is essential. However, traditional static passwords for user authentication have a key disadvantage: They can be spied on, guessed or passed on. With TeleSec OneTimePass, T-Systems offers you an authentication system based on one-time passwords. Hackers are unable to gain access even if the password is intercepted. Furthermore, the administration of access control is considerably simplified, and your helpdesk will no longer be overloaded with making changes to static passwords.
This is how OneTimePass works
TeleSec OneTimePass generates a new password for each dial-in or login, which will only be accepted by the system once. With this one-time password procedure, traditional hacking methods, which are often successful with traditional password-supported access control mechanisms, are unsuccessful. Each system user is provided with a hardware token as an authentication medium, which generates the one-time password on his display. The authentication medium can be operated offline, i.e., without being connected to a computer. This medium is used for generation and display of the current one-time password. The user logs in with the standard login screen for the server or the server application. Here, he enters his user ID. The required password (one-time password) appears in the display for his authentication medium. The user enters the password displayed in the login screen. In the background, the server then communicates with the TeleSec OneTimePass server which checks the one-time password and sends the result of the check back to the server or server application. Communication takes place via the standard RADIUS protocol and is can therefore be easily integrated.
