– Mac OS X Unlock window by means of USB flash drive

Most likely the first version that we’ll release will be a simple Screen Lock and Unlock by means of USB flash drive. The peculiar properties we had encountered:

  • Mac OS X not always automatically installs USB flash drive. That’s why you should install it yourself
  • There is no module like GINA.dll in Mac OS X, that would help performing authorization in the system
  • In Mac’s login window is impossible to get access to other’s account and to place there an optional text

Rohos Logon Key for Windows 2003 Server x64

rw_boxshot_small.pngRohos Logon Key 2.5 new release (May 14, 2008) includes support for Windows Server 2003 x64 (IA64, AMD64). The update affects support for the logon model “Windows native authentication (msgina.dll)”.

Now Rohos Logon Key can be used for secure access to workstations Windows XP x64 within Active Directory network, and for access to remote desktop Windows 2003 x64.

Windows native authentication (msgina.dll)

This logon model is considered to be the best in the following cases:

  • Windows 2000/2003 Server (if you are to use USB key for remote desktop access)
  • Workstation Windows 2000/XP connected to Windows Active Directory (Windows Domain) or in Novell network.

In this case Rohos Logon doesn’t replace module GINA.dll, but integrates in it, thus the security policy remains unaltered. As the result, network workstation and Windows 2003 Server work stays stable and trustful as before Rohos Logon being installed. Rohos Logon program supports integration with msgina.dll, nwgina.dll and ctxgina.dll.
