Is possible that IGEL device has local credentials in case Domain controller was not available and allow access?


Hi,

We have a customer testing IGEL OS 11 with Active Directory and seems that if domain controller is powered off doesn ́t connect with domain credentials. Is possible that IGEL device has local credentials in case Domain controller was not available and allow access?

Same customer has seen that enabling access with Smartcard, domain credentials access is not configurable on that endpoint. Is correct? Any way to solve it?

Thanks


Hi, that‘s right, and a bit on purpose but a local login might happen at least when UMS is not available, let me check. Is Shared Workplace in use?

Does this situation happens this often?

Which kind of Smartcards are they using?


At the moment he has no Shared Workplace and tested a few times.

He is testing with IGEL smartcard


No, I meant, is this happening such often that the DC is gone and not reachable?


Hi,

Customer talk with final customer for details and he told me that they will not use domain credentials.

They will authenticate with:

IGEL Smartcard

VPN with OTP to access customer network (Cybersecurity National Institute)

Smartcard: He will use several IGEL UD3 devices, but he will have some converted PC/laptops. He wants to use the same for all customers. Is there any 3rd party device that can read IGEL smartcards?

IGEL Smartcard needs to configure password and user data locally. Is there any way to do it all remotely from UMS to avoid devices movement?

VPN: He will use OpenVPN and must to run automatically. I sent info to the customer and seems that can de done, but tell em if you have more details apart than kb.igel.com kb.igel.com

Best regards


Our builtin Reader in an Omnikey 3×21, our Card SLE4428

In the past we recommended Cherry ST-1044U

Smartcard personalisation: I will ask, but not from what i recall… I mean, we could script it, but since Smartcards are a security sensitive topic, I wouldn‘t recommend it😬


Could he use HID Omnikey 3121 USB with IGEL cards?


It might, but a test would be better!


OK. Confirm with your colleagues if anyone tested any external reader with your cards.

Many thanks

Hi,

Searching on kb I found this note:

kb.igel.com/igelos-11.04/en/smartcard-readers-supported-by-igel-smartcards-32869982.html

and this related to configure Smartcards from UMS:

kb.igel.com/igelos-11.04/en/authentication-with-igel-smartcard-32869956.html

Is possible to configure a smartcard as “Master” with Administrator user that works with all devices? Basically to use in case of any user loses his card.


Wasn’t aware of that article (supported smartcard readers)! Great!!

You can configure a generic user yes!
