Demo - Details

Shown below is a block diagram of a typical Known Access Cloud Security setup. To access the servers on a company’s private network, a remote employee uses a VPN client on his/her PC. A secure (encrypted) tunnel is created within the public Internet, between the employee’s remote PC and a VPN router at the entry-point of the company’s network. The VPN router communicates with the Known Access Cloud Security Services to authenticate the employee’s credentials. Multifactor authentication (typically verifying the employee’s user-name, password and a soft or hard token) is used in this process for enhanced security. The VPN Router allows only authenticated employees to access the resources on the company’s private network.


Typical Known Access Cloud Security Setup

For demo purposes, since we have no access to your company’s router and private network, we will use the setup shown below. This demo will use the Known Access NacPass app as the second factor for authentication (first factor being your user-name and password). The Known Access Cloud Security Services and the NacPass app do not know the difference between “real” and “demo” setups.


Known Access Cloud Security Demo Setup

This demo will consist of the following steps:

  1. We will ask for your email address that will be used for the NacPass app setup. (We will send your NacPass setup credentials to this email address.)
  2. You will then download the NacPass app for your iPhone or Android phone from the appropriate app store.
  3. You will register the NacPass app using the credentials we provided to you in step #1.
  4. You will be able to test multifactor authentication using a simulated VPN client incorporated in our web page. You will be able to try scenarios where authentication should work, and also where it should fail. You will also see the notification messages delivered to NacPass for various events.
