The security of a software application does not only depend on the software; but also on the complete security of the IT-infrastructure. When it comes to IT-infrastructure FastPassCorp cannot dictate to customers how to configure. We will, however, promise that we in the documentation and consulting recommendations will inform how you can configure your IT-system to protect your FastPass data and processes in your infrastructure.


Protecting the integrity of data

  • Using SSL to connect to AD makes the communication secure. Requires Security Certificate where encryption is RSA with key 2048 or 4096 bits.
  • Internal system encryption is based on AES256 which is the strongest with .net
  • Sensitive data are stored in the database using encryption is based on AES256 which is the strongest with .net.
  • User data can be hashed in addition to encryption to completely protect user data.
  • All sensitive data such as the users’ answers and questions are all AES 256 Bit encrypted.
  • The FastPass TrackEngine makes sure no one can intercept and repost data.
  • Internal communication from Front-end to Back-end to Gateway is only possible using trusted SSL certificates and only from selected IP addresses
  • Password can be stored encrypted (AES 256Bit Encrypted) in the FastPass Database. This enables a set of features to tighten security regarding password history. For example a minimum number of differences to any previously used password.


Protecting the Windows PC Client

  • Windows Client has three security levels to prevent any intruders:
    • URL restrictions. The client will only communicate with the FastPass server
    • Keyboard restrictions
    • Process restrictions (Level 1 imposed by Windows, Level 2 imposed by the Windows Client C and .Net level code)


Preventing access to user’s FastPass account

  • Notification to the user of authentication attempts using Question/Answers
  • A user cannot answer the same challenge question twice or have the same answers
  • FastPass always checks if a user is still enabled and active in AD before the user can use FastPass (FastPass does not enable users)
  • After 3 failed attempts users are locked in FastPass (not in AD), Service Desk assistance is needed to unlock the account again.
  • CAPTCHA protection against robotic attempts is included.



The Best Practices for security and protection of FastPass access will include the following actions:

  • The fundamental component is the installation of FastPass WEB-services in DMZ.
  • Hardening of the DMZ-server according to the FastPass Hardening documentation
  • Demand 2-factor authentication for users coming from WAN
  • User notification of password reset
  • Notify users via SMS and e-mail that their FastPass account has been used – eg. when authentication fails.
  • Use only SSL/TLS versions that are PCI-Compliant


For extra secure environments, the following aspects can be evaluated

  • Only allow access to through the Windows Client on remote PCs (Blocks the browser interface)
  • Demand remote devices to present a trusted device/user certificate
  • Allow Enrollment only from the LAN
  • Limit the IP address scope allowed on the WAN-side

Our employees use it to synchronize their Windows password with their IBM i password when they need to be changed every 90 days due to compliance. We find this is a quiet, behind-the-scenes way for our employees to change and remember their passwords.”
