System Requirements

  • Ubisecure Server 5.0 or later
  • Active Directory running in at least Windows 2003 Mode or greater
  • Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0.

For Windows 2013 Server R2

  • Microsoft IIS 8.5

It is recommended to install the Windows Authentication Provider on a web site that has SSL/TLS enabled. SSL provides a further level of data protection. Failure to use SSL may cause end-user warnings as the authentication process switches from HTTPS to HTTP. 
The IIS server must be on the same domain as the users.

Due to Kerberos protocol restraints the connection between end-user and Windows authentication provider should not be proxied. Such configurations are not supported.

Required Files

  • uapsso.msi 
    Windows Installer package for Windows Authentication Provider
  • agents.xml 
    Configuration file created by the Ubisecure Authentication Server administrator
