Apache HTTP Server
Apache is an open source HTTP server that is estimated to serve over 50% of all active web sites on the Internet. DualShield adds multi-factor authentication to the Apache server via the DualShield SSO server and Apache Mellon module.
Mellon enables Apache to act as a SAML Service Provide (SP) so that Apache can use an external SAML Identity Provider (IdP) as its user authentication server. DualShield Single Sign-On (SSO) server is a fully compliant SAML 2.0 Identity Provider (IdP) enhanced with multi-factor authentication. When the Mellon module is installed in an Apache server, and configured to connect to a DualShield SSO server, all or selected resources hosted in the Apache server can be protected with multi-factor authentication.
DualShield SSO server supports all types of authentication methods provided by the DualShield unified authentication platform.
