With MessageID, a one-time password is generated and sent to the specified telephone number by text message or to the specified email address. The user is authenticated after the user name and password have been entered. If valid, he or she receives a second one-time password by text message or by email from the ID Control Server in real-time. The user is granted access to the required application, service, connection or system only after authentication via this additional password has been successful.
MessageID is compatible with practically any type of system, from the web server to the VPN system, and therefore fits seamlessly into existing IT infrastructures. The ID Control Server Software communicates in the background; it checks the one-time password and sends the result of the check back to the VPN system, the server, the application etc.
