LSE introduces the new version of its multi-factor authentication and OTP solution: LinOTP 2.8.1 supports multiple languages and has improved features

LSE Leading Security Experts GmbH is introducing LinOTP 2.8.1, the latest version of its vendor independent solution for adaptive multi-factor and 2-factor authentication and OTP processes (OTP: one time passwords).

LSE is now offering its latest LinOTP version in Spanish, French, Italian, and simplified Chinese in addition to the previously available English and German. In addition to the expanded available languages, LinOTP 2.8.1 has new features for monitoring and improved capabilities for server migration and complex setups. The improved user filters and support for HSM (hardware security module) migrations are also new.

With the additional languages, LSE has consistently continued to internationalise the LinOTP product line. The larger selection of available languages applies to both the self-service user portal as well as the management interfaces. “We appreciate the opportunity to provide more users worldwide with multi-factor- or two-factor-authentication,” states Sven Walther, Managing Director and CTO of LSE Leading Security Experts GmbH.

New options for monitoring

LSE is introducing a new API for monitoring internal LinOTP processes with LinOTP 2.8.1. This provides, for example, information on the statistics and the status of the tokens, the status of the HSM (hardware security module) encoding, and the status of the UserIDResolver with configurable permissions.

Improved features for server migration and complex setups

Previous features for routing registration data to other authentication servers have been improved with options for generic routing. This means migration scenarios and complex setups with multiple LinOTP instances are easier to model and administer.

Improved user filters

Today’s enterprise environments require a differentiated approach to user policy management. LinOTP 2.8.1 adds options for managing the configurations and policies based on user groups, user attributes, and regular expressions. This considerably simplifies detailed and complex permission scenarios in the setup.

 

HSM migration

In the new version of LinOTP it is now possible to migrate an HSM or a corresponding HSM cluster. LinOTP 2.8.1 includes features and tools to migrate data between two HSMs and thus makes it easier to update the HSM hardware. LinOTP supports PKCS#11-based HSM systems such as the SafeNet Network HSM (previously Luna SA).
