The authentication method configuration is done using Ubisecure SSO Management or the LDIF import files provided by Ubisecure SSO installation.

Create the Authentication Methods

Any required authentication methods used by users must now be created according to the general guidelines concerning creating authentication methods into Ubisecure SSO.

Typical methods include username and password, SMS OTP, One TIme Password Printout and third-party banking services (TUPAS). Add only the methods that will be used in the current installation:

Password method

  • Set title:
    CustomerID Password
  • Name:
    password.2
  • Select method type:
    SPI Password
  • Set directory to:
    CustomerID Directory


  • By default user logs in using the login attribute (which is uid in Ubisecure Directory and sAMAccountName in Active Directory). If you want the user to login using email address, you must add directory.account.login=mail to the configuration string. You must also add general.login.attribute=mail to eidm2.properties. Create eidm2.properties text file under /usr/local/ubisecure/customerid/application/custom

  • Set the optional policy.password.expiring configuration string to show a warning to users during login of a pending password expiry. The value is number of minutes. 10080 is one week. This number should be increased accordingly if users rarely use the system.

  • Select Enabled
  • Press Update

SMS method

  • Set title. Title will be shown in the user interface during login.
    SMS
  • Name:
    ubikey.sms.1
  • Select method type:
    SPI Mobile Phone
  • Set directory to:
    CustomerID Directory

    Figure 4. SMS method
  • By default user logs in using the login attribute (which is uid in Ubisecure Directory and sAMAccountName in Active Directory). If you want user to login using email address, you must add directory.account.login=mail to the configuration string. You must also add general.login.attribute=mail to eidm2.properties. Create eidm2.properties text file under /usr/local/ubisecure/customerid/application/custom
  • You need to define the password-name configuration string. It should contain the name of the used password method (usually password.2).
  • You need to define the smsUrl configuration string. It should contain the URL of the SMS server.

    Figure 5, SMS URL
  • If Active Directory is used as the main user repository for Ubisecure CustomerID then you need to define the methodUserGroupDN configuration string. It points to the AD group which defines those users that are allowed to use SMS authentication. The relative name of the correct group is ActiveSMSUser. The whole DN is installation specific. Typically Active Directory is not used as the main user repository for Ubisecure CustomerID.

OTP Printout method

  • Set title: Title will be shown in the user interface during login.
    One Time Password
  • Set name:
    ubikey.otp.1
  • Select method type:
    SPI Ubikey OTP Printout
  • Set directory to:
    CustomerID Directory


  • By default users log in using the login attribute (which is uid in Ubisecure Directory and sAMAccountName in Active Directory). If you want users to login using their email addresses, you must add directory.account.login=mail to the configuration string. You must also add general.login.attribute=mail to eidm2.properties. Create eidm2.properties text file under /usr/local/ubisecure/customerid/application/custom
  • You need to define the password-name configuration string. It should contain the name of the used password method (usually password.2).
  • If Active Directory is used as the main user repository then you need to define the userCredentialsTableDN configuration string. It defines the name of the OTP table object in Ubisecure Directory. OTP Printout authentication method information is stored in Ubisecure Directory for all Active Directory users who use the OTP Printout method and that information will be stored under the OTP table. Typically Active Directory is not used as the main user repository for Ubisecure CustomerID.

    Figure 6, OTP Printout Method, configuration string parameters will be shown after next part

  • Press Update
  • Select the SPI Ubikey Printout tab
    • You need to define theotpWindow configuration string if you want to define how many one-time passwords from the password list are checked against the given one-time password during one-time password validation.
    • You need to define theotpDefaultLength configuration string if you want to define the length of the one-time passwords.
    • You need to define theotpDefaultListLength configuration string if you want to define the amount of one-time passwords in a generated password list.
    • For sending the OTP list from within the Ubisecure SSO Management application the mailSessionJNDIName configuration string must be set. In most cases, this field can be left blank as it is not required for self-service list management using Ubisecure CustomerID.
