  • User ID
  • Initial PIN (if the SMS token is configured to use a PIN)

Configuring VIP credentials

Configuring VIP credentials

You can configure Defender to use Symantec Validation & ID Protection (VIP) credentials for two-factor authentication of users within your organization. VIP credentials are security tokens allowing you to generate one-time passwords. VIP credentials can be implemented as security cards, hardware tokens, and software tokens for mobile phones and Windows-based computers.

When working with VIP credentials, Defender acts as a proxy server, redirecting authentication requests to the Symantec VIP Service, a cloud-based authentication solution.

 

 

Upon receiving an authentication request from a user who has a VIP credential assigned, Defender redirects the request to the Symantec VIP Service via HTTPS. The Symantec VIP Service validates the authentication request—for that, the user’s VIP credential must be properly registered with the Symantec VIP Service—and provides a response to Defender. If the user has been successfully authenticated by the Symantec VIP Service, Defender allows that user to access the protected resource.

To configure Defender for working with VIP credentials, you need to install a VIP certificate issued by Symantec, configure the correct URL to the Symantec VIP Service, and program VIP credentials for users in your organization.
