  1. CAS support for single sign on authentication

    Many systems use CAS to support single sign on authentication. It would be great if KBOX could support single sign on for integration with portals and other systems. Currently, KBOX only supports LDAP or local auth.

    • Add support for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) to the User Portal (i.e. implement a Shibboleth SP)

      Please add support for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) OASIS standard to the K1000 User Portal and Administrator Interface by including the Shibboleth2-sp FreeBSD port in the K1000 appliance.

      Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an OASIS open standard for federated authentication and authorisation which is increasingly widely supported by academic institutions, online journals and industry partners (https://www.oasis-open.org/standards#samlv2.0). It is particularly suited to the move to cloud hosted solutions and Software as a Service (SaaS) where identity management and desktop management may be provided by separate organisations. In addition it allows true Single Sign On for locally and…

      • Support for multiple active directory domains

        Being able to connect to more than one active directory for single sign on would be an amazing feature. I have a setup where I have multiple active directory forests and MUST keep them separate and disconnected. I use multiple orgs and am enjoying it, but without being able to join to each active directory with single sign on, I am afraid user adoption of the portal will be minimal and not worth the effort. Please add this as soon as possible.

          This is under consideration but not planned for the next release, Please continue voting if you’d like to see this feature prioritized for a future release.

        • Retire DAS Encryption

          Knowledge Article 125812 work around advocates enabling DES (an encryption that has been superseded since 2002, it is now 2014). Please update to AES Encryption for currently Microsoft supported Windows OSs (XP has been retired)

          Microsoft describes "DES is considered weak cryptography and is no longer enabled by default in Kerberos authentication in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2."

          We don't need security issues with K1000.

          • Bug: Logout disables single sign on

            Just recently upgraded to the 5.5 Single Sign on, and it's great! However, our users noticed that when they log out of the system, they cannot get single sign on to work again unless they fully close, then reopen, Internet Explorer. I worked with KACE support and they said the following, requesting that I post it here:

            "It seems what is happening is that the token that gets created for SSO to work to log on initially isn't getting resubmitted until the browser is refreshed/re-opened. The ability to log back on without reopening the browser could be submitted as a…

            • Azure AD Provider SSO

              Build some nice and easy SSO integration for Azure AD similar to salesforce. Would be very nice to be able to do this like you can with salesforce etc, I'm very surprised that in the re-design for SSO that it wasnt brought in.

              • Using any OU to join AD Domain for SSO

                K1000 Join Domain for SSO needs that AD Admin user has permission to write computer/user in 'Computers' container in their domain by AD admin user. *

                If there is the ADadmin user that does not have writable permission for Computers container under domain but has permissions only under some OUs assigned,
                When using the AD Admin user, K1000 cannot join to the domain without support by Technical Support.
                K1000 should provide the feature that users can specify any OU they has in the web interface in order to join K1000 to AD domain.

                • allow users to change organizations

                  When users login using SSO they get the default organization. They do not have a way to change to another organization. A fast organization change like the admins have would correct this issue.

                    • Update Kerberose Compatability for SSO

                      RC4_HMAC_MD5 Protocol is currently the only method used by Kace to authenticate Kerberose. RC4_HMAC_MD5, was deprecated in 2006 and is disabled by default on secure operating systems. Microsoft patched this in 2013 disabling RC4 on Windows 7 and yet this is still the only way to authenticate to SSO. Organizations needing modern security will not be able to use SSO on Kace unless this is fixed.

                          • Redirect to ticket after login

                            Problem: When I receive an email regarding a ticket, it includes a link directly to the ticket. Clicking the link redirects me to the authentication page if my session has expired. After I then login, I am taken to my list of tickets instead of the ticket I was trying to get to.

                            Please add functionality to land on ticket after login.
