CA Risk Authentication based on Machine MAC-addresses

    Dears,

    We are looking to create certain Risk Authentication rules and scenarios based on the Machine MAC addresses. But as we can see there is no option available by default in CA Advanced Authentication to capture the MAC addresses and utilize it to create your Risk rules.

    Looking for your guidance towards exploring this requirement and get it working. Your support is highly appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    Javed

    Javed,

    unfortunately the Mac address could not be collected by a javascript in the browser, so it is not used in the MFP of Risk Authentication for web application.
    A different approach could be used on mobile, when using the SDK, you can collect more hardware info.

    Hi Javed,
    Java script can not capture the MAC address so for browser based applications it is not possible to create rules based upon that.
