So how does IBM Notes Browser Plug-in authenticate with the Domino Server when user tries to access any databases/applications?
- As I have been mentioning from the beginning, the Notes Browser Plug-in uses NRPC protocol to talk to the Domino Server, not http. So you will need to use your Notes Client password rather than the iNotes or http password you might have setup.
- Another fact you need to understand is that the Notes Browser Plug-in continues to use the ID file that you have been using with your Notes Client. So all the features and access control that were available to you in Notes client will continue to be governed when using this plug-in.
What this means is that if you are using an ID Vault with your Domino Setup, the same can safely be used with Notes Browser Plug-in. If you had setup NSL (Notes Shared Login) for use within your organization, the same would continue to be supported by the Notes Browser Plug-in. Or if you were using the old Single sign-on with synchronization with windows password. All of these, because the ID file and underlying security code is re-used by the Notes Browser Plug-in, remain the same.
In this first release of the Notes Browser Plug-in, we do not support SAML though.
