Given the current INFOSEC and budget conditions in the US Government, US corporations and the DoD, need a reliable, secure and inexpensive two-factor authentication system. Current providers like EMC’s RSA SecurID have proven security issues and have nearly crippled IT enterprise budgets at the same time. The time has come to provide a more secure and inexpensive solution.
At Tachyon Dynamics, we have built, secured, tested and hardened a robust, inexpensive, and highly flexible two-factor authentication solution introduced by Yubico called TDIYubiServ. Users authenticate using something they know (username/password) and something they have (hardware token called Yubikey). The Yubikey is a USB token-based One Time Password (OTP) device. Tachyon Dynamics customized the platform available to all of our previous, current and future clients. The Tachyon Dynamics TDIYubiServ system has been hardened by utilizing DoD Secure Technical Implementation Guidance (STIG) and a secure virtualized implementation of RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.9, and numerous different authentication clients/servers embedded (TACACS+, RADIUS, Windows Active Directory, or local accounts).
The difference with TDIYubiServ from others?
- TDIYubiServ is fully hardened in compliance with the DISA Red Hat Enterprise Linux Secure Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)
- TDIYubiServ is one of the first authentication servers undergoing DoD Information Network (DoDIN)/Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products Lists (APL) testing
- TDIYubiServ contains numerous mechanisms to interface with your infrastructure devices and systems like: a FreeRADIUS server (the Linux RADIUS server), the Yubico-validation server, a tac_plus server (the Linux TACACS+ server), a Windows active directory/Kerberos client, a RADIUS client using pam_radius, and local Linux accounts managed through the local PAM database
All Tachyon Dynamics clients are able to access our password-restricted download page with installation instructions and download link for the Tachyon Dynamics‘ TDIYubiServe VMWare OVF image.
