Strong Authentication for Citrix Environments
Delfigo offers strong authentication solutions that extend the core security of your Citrix infrastructure out to the end user to insure only authorized users access applications and data. Companies with a committed investment in Citrix’s dynamic application delivery infrastructure rely upon SSL VPN to secure data in transit, using Citrix Access Gateway (CAG) or Citrix Access Gateway virtual appliance (VPX) for Xenapp. This secures the data, but how can you be sure that the end user is an authorized user, and not a fraudulent actor? Many solutions continue to rely solely upon single factor authentication - i.e. username and password - to confirm a user is authentic. However, single factor authentication has proven inadequate.
Delfigo and Citrix
Delfigo builds upon components already present in Citrix environments (RADIUS) to pass captured data to the DSGateway decision engine for processing. Using the Dual Source Authentication option available in CAG and XenApp, Delfigo is able to modify the login page to capture credentials and pass them through to the server. The decision engine scores the captured credentials against a configurable scale to allow or disallow access. Companies needing secure access for their internal employees and external users have greater confidence and control for implementing role based authorization to protect data and privacy.
Citrix Access Gateway
The CAG login module is modified to pass credentials through RADIUS after being first factor validation is complete. RADIUS returns a binary response to allow or disallow the user to enter.
Xenapp Web Interface is modified to pass credentials (use of RADIUS is optional)
As a trusted Citrix Ready partner, Delfigo continues to develop its relationship through new product updates, including upcoming support for Citrix Receiver, making strong authentication for Citrix environments available on any device – PC, MAC, netbook, tablet, or smartphone.
Platform Requirements for Web Service
DSGateway is open architected and is platform and database agnostic. DSGateway uses Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) and Hibernate Data Access Objects (DAO) to communicate with internal processes and the database layers. DSGateway supports Java, PHP, and .NET environment on Windows 2003 and above servers.
DSGateway is verified to be compatible with:
|Citrix Product||Version||Operating System|
|XenApp||5.0 32-bit||Access Gateway|
|XenApp||6 64-bit||Access Gateway|
