User authentication

User logon and authentication can take place directly on the eLux device after device start-up or on the back-end server to which the device connects.

eLux supports user authentication with Active Directory. This can be done via username and password or via smart card. Both eLux methods are configured on the Security tab of the device configuration as described below. Additionally, authentication via Evidian is supported.1

Note that for authentication under eLux, the appropriate eLux software packages must be installed on the devices. For smart card check, in addition to the eLux functions, appropriate middleware and hardware drivers for the smart card readers are required.
