Agile Authentication Provider

Two factor authentication is important for strong authentication systems. Available technologies and state of the art authentication factors develop fast.
Therefore it is important to react on such changes. ALAP provides an architecture for generic multi factor authentication. This eases the integration of different authentication factors.
ALAP consists of multiple server applications and an authenticator application. 

The server applications provide services, for example a Security Layer interface, or a SAML2 endpoint, etc.

These service endpoints, communicate with a backend application, which authorizes requests to a cryptosystem, or other generic request, based on a definable policy. A generic authentication service, uses openid connect to authenticate the user against multiple authentication applications. Each of these applications represents an authentication plugin.

Currently ALAP implements a subset of the Security Layer as a service.

Currently available authentication plugins are:
  • Username / Password
  • SMS TAN
  • Timebased onetime passwords (uses authenticator application)
  • QR based TAN (uses authenticator application)
