Add an additional layer of protection with the IPSafeZone authentication

This tutorial describes the IPSafeZone authentication with the SecSignID Plugins for Atlassian Services like Jira or Confluence

Overview

Overview

While the SecSign ID two-factor authentication offers the highest level of security for your company logins, but a two-factor authentication may be unnecessary in some cases.

Most self-hosted (on-premise) Atlassian services like JIRA and Confluence are used in internal networks for internal access. The infrastructure in those cases is usually restrictive to outside access and access is only available to internally identified users. With the SecSign ID IPSafeZone extension those users do not need to authenticate with an additional second factor. Only access via external logins need to authenticate with the additional second factor.

With the IPSafeZone Option a secure IP-Zone is defined. If an user is within this IP-Zone he does not need to authenticate via the two-factor authentication but with a less secure user name and password authentication. If the user is outside of that IP-Zone he needs to authenticate with the SecSign ID Two-Factor Authentication or, if activated, with the 2-step authentication.

The IP-Zone is defined as A.B.C.D – E.F.G.H format and includes all IPs within these boundaries. For example 192.168.0.255 – 192.168.1.2 includes 192.168.0.255192.168.1.0192.168.1.1192.168.1.2

Pre-requirements

Pre-requirements

To activate the IPSafeZone feature for your JIRA and Confluence users you first need to setup the SecSign ID Atlassian plugin. More information about the plugins and the tutorial on the respective setup are available in our Atlassian overview.

ATLASSIAN OVERVIEW

To activate the feature you also need administrative rights as well as a corresponding SecSign ID that is assigned to your user name.

Limitations

Limitations with IPSafeZone

To activate the IPSafeZone at least one administrator needs to have a SecSign ID assigned to. User without a designated SecSign ID can not login until they are assigned an ID for the authentication.

Also, users can not be assigned more than one SecSign ID because a definite assignment of the user to an ID is no longer possible. User without a SecSign ID need to have an ID assigned to by an administrator to be able to login with the 2SA procedure.

Activate 2SA

Activate Two-Step Authentication

To activate the SecSign ID IPSafeZone for Atlassian services please navigate to Administration – User management. Set the check mark at “Activate IPSafeZone” to activate the feature and define an IP-range.

If the option change own IDs is activated, the user can change his ID in his profile. The administrator can always change all IDs in all profiles. If this option is deactivated only the administrator can change the IDs, not the user.
