Germany-based LSE, Leading Security Experts GmbH, a part of MAX21 Management group of companies (stock exchange symbol: MA1, ISIN: DE000A0D88T9) will be represented at RSA Conference, the world’s leading conference for IT Security in San Francisco, at booth #S815 South Expo as an OATH organization (initiative for Open Authentication) from February 29 to March 4, 2016. During this international event, LSE will present their latest product expansion for the OS X®operating system, “LSE LinOTP Authentication Provider”, which is the first adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA/2FA) product for Mac platforms.

With its LSE LinOTP Authentication Provider, LSE is expanding the portfolio of existing authentication provider products for Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems to OS X®. This token solution enables implementation on a cross-platform and cross-technology basis. The new product improves the login security with a One-Time Password solution (OTP). LSE LinOTP backend supports all existing OTP implementations, such as mobile apps (Google Authenticator, FreeOTP) and tokens (i.e. OATH, Yubikey). The configuration is done via an integrated OS X® Environment native configuration dialogue. Thanks to LSE LinOTP, adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA/2FA) is being expanded to Mac environments.

LSE LinOTP Authentication Provider communicates with LinOTP backend via an encrypted HTTPS connection, which allows for high-availability scenarios with round-robin or load-balancing scenarios.
