2 factor authentication for IBM Domino iNotes and HTTP

Vladislav Tatarincev  21 June 2016 16:46:30

Our company has designed solution that protects IBM iNotes/Webmail and Domino Web Applications a with 2 factor authentication. After logging in with regular password and login, user receives unique code via SMS or alternative email, or it can be generated  with OneTime Password Software generators, for example Google Authenticator(https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/1066447?hl=en).
We have few clients using this for two years already. Every quarter we  add new features. Many clients who need additional security or need to be compliant with PCI DSS will love this software.
This 2 factor authentication can be enabled globally, or for some users only.

Installation and configuration of solution takes around 1 hour, so this is easy to try. Till 31.Dec.2016 we have competitive upgrade offering from other vendors with 50% discount.

As well we are looking for IBM Business Partner who can resell it , and we give internal use licences to our resellers.

Vladislav Tatarincev  7 April 2016 14:43:23

Problem appears only when view has many thousands of documents.

Issue can be resolved by checking Conserve Memory checkbox. since I was unable to find it in support, hopefully Google with index it and it will help TDI people :)

    input languge changes to other / wrong language when using Microsoft Remote Desktop from Mac OS X

    Vladislav Tatarincev  7 April 2016 11:21:28
    For 5 years I am happy Mac user. But one things was very annoying is connecting from My Machine to Windows Servers since I do some administration.

    I live in Latvia, while I am Russian. I know four languages Latvian, Russian, English and French. I have Latvian, Russian and English configured on my Mac,  but when I connect to Windows Server, all of a sudden, Microsoft selects for me Lithuanian Language, on remote server. Lithuanian keyboard layout is not matching Latvian layout, so every time you type a command it is typing wrong symbols.
    For people who do programming in Microsoft, Latvia and Lithuania are two independent countries, with their own languages. Latvia and Lithuania are part of Europe. Europe is a territory on the opposite side of Atlantic Ocean.
    Microsoft programmer who made this bug should wonder - Wow! There are countries except ours?

    Anyway, yesterday I found solution, it is configured on remote server. Solution is ok for your servers, but every news server should be reconfigured. May be some one knows hot to change this on Mac level.
    You should create a key in  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
    Key name is      IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout
    Type of key is REG_DWORD
    and value is 1

    Hope it will kelp you :)

    Vladislav Tatarincev  24 February 2016 21:04:40
    My colleague Alexander K., has noticed that latest version of IBM Verse that arrived today, has notification sound fixed.
    Previously when new mail has arrived, there was no option to hear that you have new mail if you are using Verse client.

    Now it works like charm! Upgrade to 9.3.2 version, that arrived on 24FEB2016.

    We reported this issue many time from different clients, I am happy it is solved now. :)

    You should receive a voucher code from IBM if you participate in IBM Connect 2016.
    If you are lucky like me, and have not received voucher, subscribe manually at the Certification table (if EXPO entrance is behind you, this table is to the left).

    Invalid NSF Version, when using LotusScript RegisterNewUser on Mixed 8.5/9.x or CA touched by 9.x client

    Vladislav Tatarincev  15 January 2016 09:59:03
    We have one environment where Administrators use small IBM Lotus Notes application, to administer users, Create, Rename, Reset passwords, etc.
    It was working fine for few years now, but all of a sudden, application stopped working. Error returned to request submitted by user is "INVALID NSF Version". Script fails on RegisterNewUser method.

    Checking ODS of Certlog.nsf, names.nsf, log.nsf and MailTemplate has not resolved this.

    At the end, my colleague has found that issue was related to CA task was touched (Modify Certified in Administrator) by Notes 9.0.1 client.
    Issue was resolved by resaving ICL db (Modify Certifier) with 8.5 Client.


    Since this issue took us some time, and also mentioned in Internet without solution, has decided to blog about it. Uncle Google will help to index it :)
