Announcing ISAM 9.0.2.1 and the IBM Verify Cookbook

Share this post:

One of the interesting and advanced new features of ISAM 9.0.2.1 is mobile multi-factor authentication. This technology allows you to perform step-up authentication (or in fact direct login) using an application on you mobile, known as IBM Verify, which can prompt for user-presence or fingerprint authentication.

A few of us here at IBM have been working on a comprehensive cookbook to allow customers (and IBM’ers for that matter) to setup and experiment with this technology on their own.

Today I am pleased to announce that the IBM Verify Cookbook, along with automated configuration tooling, is available on the ISAM Wiki, alongside our popular Federation Cookbook.

Special thanks to Jon and Benjamin who provided much of the content and automation for this cookbook, and to all of the development team for their efforts on ISAM 9.0.2.1.
