FastX Security

Authentication

SSH Authentication in Both the Browser and Desktop Clients

FastX uses SSH to authenticate on both the Browser and the Client.  Authentication methods include, password, public key, multi-factor, Kerberos, Challenge-response, LDAP, among others.  SSH is a standard authentication and encryption technology used everyday in systems.

Browser SSL Certificates

SSL certificates are standard security practices that allow browsers to authenticate web servers as well as encrypt traffic

Encryption

SSH Encryption in the Desktop Client

All data is encrypted through an SSH channel

SSL/TLS Encryption in the Browser Client

All data is encrypted through a secure SSL/TLS connection

Authorization

Session Whitelisting/Blacklisting

FastX allows administrators to restrict which applications can be launched in a session.  Allowed applications are on the white list, while rejected sessions are on a black list.  Click here for more information on session whitelisting.

Screen Sharing

Session Owner

The person who turns on session sharing is the session owner.  All other users are guests to the owner.  The owner can remove guests and give control to other guests

Auto-Disconnection

Shared Sessions are automatically ended when the session owner closes his connection.  This allows the session owner to monitor the actions of the guest when the session is shared

Single Controller

Only one user can control the shared session at any time.  This allows session owners to monitor exactly who is interacting with the shared session.
