New Rohos Logon Key provides an effective and platform independent means of Multi-factor Authentication for your Amazon WorkSpaces desktops. You can protect access to AWS Windows desktops with Google Authentication OTP codes or Yubikey OTP codes. This greatly increase security, brings compliance with HIPPA, PCI-DSS or works as a password replacement technology.
We are happy to report that Rohos Logon Key for Mac (3.4) is compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave.
We are working on bringing a better dark mode support into our app in the nearest feature.
Now you can download and update to new version.
We are working to add file encryption feature to Rohos Mini Drive and Rohos Disk Encryption products. This will allow to encrypt separate folders and files stored on a computer. It is designed specially for those who really concerned about data security of confidential information stored in Google Drive or Dropbox. Since both file data and file name are stored on a computer in encrypted form, the application like Google Drive will upload already encrypted content into cloud storage.
We are working towards to add new authentication experience for Windows login and now Rohos Logon Key v.3.8 allows to use any supported 2FA authentication device in combination with One Time Password authentication method (Google Authenticator). This will help to apply strong two-factor authentication with local or remote access. With this features we will start to introduce rule-based multi-factor authentication decision framework into Rohos Logon Key.
Whats new in new Rohos Logon Key v.3.8 in brief:
- Allows to combine 2FA methods: physical access Key with One Time Password codes;
- Redesigned “Setup authentication key” dialog box;
- Redesigned “Options” dialog box;
- One Time Password entry field on a logon screen;
- (In progress) Allows to combine any types of 2FA methods for Windows login; This option allow to introduce new 2FA method in parallel with already used one. For example you are using OTP 2FA technology now and you will be able to add new users with U2F authentication keys while keeping existing OTP users untouched.
Now you can use popular U2F FIDO security keys for Windows logon. Both multi-factor and single-factor authentication use cases are supported as well. It means you can use your U2F key as a password replacement or you can setup true multi-factor authentication to unlock your dektop: U2F Key + your Windows password.
We have tried out Terminal Services Plus (TSPlus) solution for Remote Desktop access for Windows 7/8/10 with Rohos Logon Key installed. Both TSPlus web based access and MS Remote Desktop Connection application uses target Windows authentication system. This is the point where Rohos Logon Key applies 2-factor authentication control. The following screenshot demonstrates 2FA requirement upon successful password based remote access with TSPlus web :

We have updated Rohos Logon Key for Mac to support macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Also we would like to announce soon support for U2F security keys for Mac login.
- Added support for macOS 10.13 High Sierra
- Fixed Rohos Logon Key.app sub folders permissions conflict.
Research on Security Keys
While integrating FIDO U2F key as a new authentication method to Rohos Logon Key, we have reviewed it’s features. In this article we outline the origin and history of U2F, how it works on low level, the list of capabilities and possible applications that beside authentication includes also document signature, crypto-currency, blockchain and change management.
Rohos Logon Key v.3.6 now allows to use T-OTP OATH codes produced by Google Authenticator for example, for Windows AD network multi-factor authentication: user account password + OTP code. OTP codes verification performed by Domain Controllers. Offline workstations are also supported. Also we are working to add FIDO U2F devices support.
Rohos Logon Key v3.5 announce now support of RFIDeas pcProx reader and KCY-125 RFID reader. This allows to implement multi-factor authentication by using a variety of RFID cards, tags, bracelets and employee ID badges of Emarine, Indala, HIDProx and other standards in Active Directory and standalone Windows workstations as well. Rohos Logon Key replaces weak password based login with a physical key and PIN code or physical key and Windows password. This improves organization security controls and brings regulatory compliance such as HIPAA, HITECH, PCI DSS, FFIEC and others.
