CA Top Secret

No-Fail Friday: From the Trenches of Advanced Authentication 

06-01-2016 11:57 AM

We are excited to announce the general availability of the Advanced Authentication Mainframe feature for CA ACF2™ and CA Top Secret® at no additional cost to licensed customers. This initial release of the functionality supports use of RSA® SecurID® tokens as the second factor.


Join John Pinkowski (pinjo01), Senior Principal Product Manager to learn how the Advanced Authentication Mainframe feature:

  • Addresses NIST standards, supporting RSA SecurID hard and soft tokens for two-factor authentication to z/OS.
  • Leverages CA Top Secret and CA ACF2 R16 installations along with current RSA SecurID v7.x or v8.x infrastructure for implementation.
  • Enables a consistent two-factor authentication approach across mainframe and enterprise infrastructures, for those organizations using RSA SecurID.
  • Requires any individual user, group of users, or all users to authenticate successfully with two factors before logging into z/OS applications.
  • Maps user IDs between the mainframe and RSA Synchronization Server.
  • Requires selected applications to use two-factor authentication and leverages all authentication options offered through RSA SecurID.
