Hideez Key for CyberArk. Authentication Integration

Online security 2021, Authentication tips

Stolen credentials are used to commit fraud on an enormous scale through Account Takeover (ATO) or credential stuffing attacks. This presents a huge problem for businesses with employees online. Data breaches can compromise your internal documents and processes, your sensitive customer data and your financials.

Solution Overview

The user authenticates using the HTTPS web-based access to the PVWA system (the CyberArk authorization system is configured as a client of the RADIUS server). The user enters the basic credentials (Login and Password) using Hideez Key as a reliable hardware password storage. The CyberArk system, after checking and confirming the base user accounts, makes a request to the remote RADIUS server, which is configured in conjunction with the one-time password generator system, and requests the user to confirm the OTP confirmation code. The user using the Hideez Key enters a confirmation code. In case of incorrect verification of the code, access is denied to the user. Upon successful verification, the RADIUS server confirms the authenticity of the user to the CyberArk PVWA system. PVWA allows the user inside in accordance with the rights granted by the CyberArk system.
