U.S. Federal agencies often require PKI certificate-based authentication to perform Windows Logon and to access public key enabled systems. This requires use of a multi-factor authentication token that performs a cryptographic operation using the certificate and keys residing within the token.
Traditional multi-factor authentication introduces roadblocks to technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The OMB Memo M-19-17 outlines a policy that requires management of digital identities of non-person entities such as software robots. This means that all software robots are required to have individual digital identities and credentials that are managed in the same fashion as traditional user identities. Although software robots cannot be issued a physical token, they can utilize multi-factor login capabilities through the use of a centralized, hardware security module-based authentication system.
View this webinar to learn how Thales TCT’s Luna Credential System integrates with UiPath’s RPA platform to provide hardware-protected PKI credentials for software robots. The session will discuss topics including:
- An introduction to RPA
- RPA cryptographic authentication best practices
- OMB Memo M-19-17 compliance RPA
- RPA Defense Department Implementation Overview
