Heads Up: ActivCard has announced ActivPack 2.0 for Novell eDirectory, which includes their full-featured method for NMAS and a BMAS-to-NMAS migration tool. Novell customers using ActivCard tokens will now be able to easily upgrade from older versions of BorderManager to NBM 3.8 (which uses/includes NMAS 2.2 as its authentication framework).

Here's the scoop:

ActivPack for Novell eDirectory offers a comprehensive solution for seamless integration and management of digital identity services within Novell eDirectory, Novell ConsoleOne?, Novell Modular Authentication Service (NMAS), and Novell iChain?. ActivPack for Novell eDirectory secures authentication for local login to Novell eDirectory, remote access via Novell BorderManager?, and web access through Novell iChain.

When used with smart cards and ActivCard Gold, ActivPack for Novell eDirectory offers flexible methods for authenticating and accessing systems and services using private keys, digital certificates, dynamic passwords, or static passwords stored securely on the user's card. When using token-based authentication, users are granted access to diverse network and Internet services with dynamic passwords generated on the token for strong two-factor identification.

Embedded in Novell ConsoleOne, ActivPack for Novell eDirectory enables Novell administrators to centrally manage (create, distribute, and control) the credentials for all users managed by Novell eDirectory. ActivPack for Novell eDirectory provides a single point of administration with a consistent approach for all administrative features (managing users, desktops, network, security, applications, etc.).

This is supposed to be shipping on May 29, so keep your eyes open for it. For more details click here. (Tell them Cool Solutions sent you...)
