Use this guide to enable a SecureAuth IdP realm to utilize a Certificate Finder begin site.
At this begin site, SecureAuth IdP can search for a Java certificate and extract the user ID from it. From there, the end-user follows the SecureAuth IdP workflow configured in the realm (e.g. Multi-Factor Authentication) without requiring to enter the user ID, and is asserted to the Post Authentication target.
SecureAuth IdP includes Certificate Finder V1 and Certificate Finder V2 begin sites. They perform the same functions; but Certificate Finder V2 includes a master page that alerts end-users that SecureAuth IdP is checking for a certificate and resembles the login page theme, whereas Certificate Finder V1 displays only a blank page.
1. Have a valid Java certificate from which SecureAuth IdP can extract the user ID
2. Create a New Realm or edit an existing realm to which Certificate Finder will be applied in the SecureAuth IdP Web Admin
3. Configure the following tabs in the Web Admin before configuring for Certificate Finder:
Overview – the description of the realm and SMTP connections must be defined
Data – an enterprise directory must be integrated with SecureAuth IdP
Workflow – the way in which users will access the target must be defined
Multi-Factor Methods – the Multi-Factor Authentication methods that will be used to access the target (if any) must be defined
