What is the process for IBM password self-service?
Service desk as part of the secure user service
Some users will call the help desk. Even hackers might call the help desk and pretend to be a real employee (see the MGM case: LinkedIn as the Trojan Horse at MGM: The Rising Threat of Social Engineering in IT Security ).
FastPass offers a secure user verification to confirm the user’s identity before a new password is issued: FastPass Identity Verification Manager
Enterprise Scalability with Robust IBM Integration
Crafted with large-scale operations in mind, FastPass is more than just an IBM password reset tool. It’s a complete ecosystem tailored for enterprises:
Pricing for IBM self service of password reset:
Pricing depends primarily on:
Expect the price for on-premise subscription to be about 0.35$/user per month
How do you connect to the IBM systems?
This depends on the system at hand and the means that are available. The most common ones are:
IBM i: For the iSeries we have a specific connector written int IBM Tool Box for Java. This connector connects to the Remote Service Port preferably over SSL. On the IBM side, no extra software is needed, but a privileged account with the right to reset the passwords is needed. Contact FastPass for a detailed description.
IBM Z/OS(RACF): For the Z systems it strongly depends on the setup. Is there is a LDAP in front eg. Tivoli, then we connect using that. If not other tools are brought into play from Java connectors to SSH connectors. We have done OS/390 using SSH and IBM Z using LDAP. On the IBM side no software is needed, however for the LDAP solution a privileged account is needed for allowing FastPass to the passwords – the same is true for the SSH connector.
Is the portal cloud or on-premises?
You choose FastPass Cloud or the FastPass on-premises solution for your own domain. The two solutions are functional identical. Pricing is comparable between the two solutions.
What are the technical requirements?
For the Cloud solution FastPass needs a single small Windows server to connect to the target systems. On the server the FastPass Remote Gateway component is installed. From this server the connections are made to the IBM systems directly and for a local Active Directory, should that be present.
For the On-Premise version of FastPass a server needs to be installed hosting FastPass. If users are to be able to access the solution from the Internet a DMZ server holding the FastPass Web Client needs to be installed on a separate server, an SSL certificate is needed on the server. Databases wise an MSSQL database is used to store data, either using the customers MSSQL environment or on the server itself.
In an era where efficiency and security are paramount, FastPass emerges as the beacon for IBM operations.
Representing the zenith among IBM self-service password reset tools, our solution is a blend of security, efficiency, and forward-thinking innovation, ready to usher enterprises into a new age of password management.
