Login to a Traveler Server via certificate instead username and password

The possibility to choose a certificate as login instead the normal user credentials would be great.

Due to password policies in almost all customer environments, user have to change there passwords on their mobile devices along the domino security policy.

Actually, there is a way to do this in conjunction with IBM Lotus Mobile connect but in first this is really awkward and more important , it is deprecated and it´s discontinued.

Maybe it is possible to get a mechanism in conjunction with a domino CA and the traveler landing page, during activation for instance, that will deploy a signed user certificate on a mobile device like other solutions do.

    The certificates can and should be deployed via an existing Mobile Device Management MDM solution. The MDM will be able to handle the certificate creation, deployment and revocation.
    We are using this since years integrated into our own MDM solution mobile.profiler. It will generate a cert if needed, adds the public key to the person document and pushes the device certificate to the device. Result: Authentication is done by the certificate - no passwords anymore.
    Today this is working great with the Apple integrated Mail App using ActiveSync  and IBM Verse for Android.
    What's missing is the IBM Verse for iOS and Companion :-(
    Waiting for this since years.

    This is a way to make Traveler internet password issues disappear. Today it’s a bit of a nightmare if internet password  lockout is enabled on traveler, or you enforce internet pssword changes on users. As stated LMC is not really the way to want to implement this.

    AFAIK, this is planned.
