A two-factor authentication solution integrated with RACF® for users logging on to the mainframe.

Vanguard ez/Token is a two-factor RSA authentication solution that allow users to authenticate through either RSA SecurID, SafeSign, or ActivIdentity tokens to the zSeries Server or any other application currently using RACF authentication. The ez/Token solution provides a more secure alternative than the usual RACF user ID/password combination. With ez/Token, users substitute a new, one-time passcode in place of a password. Passcodes are generated randomly every 60 seconds. For enhanced security, the passcode can be combined with a PIN number.

FEATURES

With Vanguard ez/Token users can:

  • Authenticate through either an ActivIdentity or RSA SecurID token to log on to the Mainframe via TSO, CICS, IMS, or any other application using RACF authentication.
  • Perform New PIN and Next Token Code operations through a Web interface.

Authenticate with ez/Token
The ez/Token authentication exit authenticates users logging on to the zSeries Server or any other application that uses RACF security, through either an ActivIdentity or RSA SecurID tokens.

Next Token Code
The ez/Token Website Next Token Code page allows users to get the Next Token Code for their user ID when necessary.

New PIN
The ez/Token Website New PIN page allows users to change the PIN for their user ID when necessary.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Eliminates the need for users to remember passwords.
  • Requires no changes to logon screens.
  • Allows you to dynamically choose which users will be authenticated with either an ActiveIdentity, SafeSign, RSA SecurID®, or native RACF.
  • Allows you to dynamically choose which users will or will not require a PIN number.
  • Eliminates Help Desk calls for forgotten passwords.
