The Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) is a software library which offers a general programming interface for authentication services. By using the PAM-API one does no longer need to define the settings for every single authentication application. Instead, individual standarized modules can be used.

The modules can be assigned to individual services in the configuration file. There is no need to change the compilation of the corresponding software. PAM is available for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X and DragonFly BSD.

We offer the SecSign ID RADIUS Proxy for authentication services using the RADIUS Server and Active Directory. This way the SecSign IDs are requested from the Active Directory as compared to the configuration file.

1. Authentication Process

The user provides, with an SSH connection for this example, his user name and password. He receives a push-notification to his smartphone within seconds, providing the service name and address of the service he wants to log in to. As soon as he confirms the request the SSH connection is established.

That is everything there is to do for the user to enjoy truly secure Two-Factor Authentication and prevent access to the system even with leaked password information.

2. Available APIS

We provide an ever growing list of APIs and plugins to easily integrate the SecSign ID Two-Factor Authentication in any project. An overview is available at Plugin and APIs.
We do not only offer APIs in different programming languages but also plugins for CMS, Server and VPN environments, oAuth2 and many more. These plugins use our APIs and offer additional functionalities, for example user management, easy and native installation, logging or integration in firewalls or Active Directory.

The JIRA plugin for example uses the JAVA-API. The PHP-Api and JS-API is used by WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Typo3 and many more. The ASP.net/C#-API is used for the Windows and Cisco VPN and the C-API is used for protecting Unix SSH services. The Objective-C API is used by our AppleTV and iPhone/iPad apps.
