Authenticate on Nomad with internet login/pwd instead of ID file

Managing ID files is the most painful problem with users who just use Notes client from time to time for a legacy application. The ID file in the vault may be expired, or pwd expired, or pwd not unique, and so one. The vault may not be accessible through pass-thru.

I hope that Nomad will be the solution, and be like a Verse or Sametime app, easy to configure with internet credentials, ready to play. The same could be said with HCAA though.

I understand the security and technical issues of the suggestion, but why not ? People do use iNotes over web only, and have the ID file embedded if needed. The same for Traveler.

The dream of having a beautifying legacy apps client without work, and with internet access straightforward.. :)

    Thomas, thanks for the explanation, I understand and quite agree, too.

    I probably should ask for ID Vault enhancements then. It does not like at all combining one or more from :

    • 1st setup of client

    • forgotten pwd

    • expired pwd

    • expired ID file

    • renamed user

    • domino pass-thru

    Common L1/L2 admins just aren't able to check, get through these. They are quite common problems for "nomad users" (=always on the road , or contractors by customers).

    Currently testing Nomad, I realize that only my most determined users will get it. It will not go viral like Sametime or Verse for now.

    Nomad, and iNotes, Verse and Traveler (Companion) need the key material stored in the ID file. Authenticating via internet password is not going to provide access to the ID file to perform secure operations (encrypt/decrypt). Instead of weakening security, our approach is to strengthen security by removing the need for having an internet password and authenticate all users directly against the IDVault - this option already exists in v11.0.1.

    So yes, yes you will get what you wanted to have, but in a different way: your users will not need to remember multiple passwords anymore.
