We’d like a software package (call it auto sign-on ASO) to > support the following: > 1. a user starts a secure application. > 2. the login prompt appears. > 3. user passes his/her HID prox card in front of a reader > 4. ASO authenticates user. Not sure what to do here - maybe write our own code to interpret the 26-bit Weigand input from the prox card? At any rate, once the user is authenticated, we'd use that info to "lookup" in Acitive Directory and see what he/she has permission for. > 5. If user ok for that secure app, enters valid user name & password if not...dispaly error message Any thoughts? I was hoping this would be a shareware app or at least an easily written app that could be distributed to clients and perform as indicated above when ever a user swipes a card

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The active directory and security information is available to system apps by default. There are scripts you can create and run to do a RSOP or a resultant set of policy showing who has access to what. This should be able to be incorporated within your app.

When the user swipes his card and authenticates at login those credentials are saved to a token on the machine.

Let me know if I am not barking up the right trail buddy!

    KarlG You're barking loud and clear! Creating the scripts is our biggest hurddle. Since we've not done this before, we were hoping to find some that are already "tried and true". My hope was that someone has been down this trail already and developed the basics for getting us going. We're a small shop and have few resources to throw at this. But, if we must learn/do scripting...roger that. We'll gear up. Mark
