Secondary User Authentication on Linux Clients


If the Client is installed on a computer running the Linux operating system, and if multiple users can use the same account (e.g. “root”) to log in to the terminal, it may be important to also identify the individual person using the account.

Identification of an individual can be performed by means of secondary user authentication, which requires the user to enter additional credentials when they open the terminal.

The user must enter the credentials of an Ekran System user who has the Access to Endpoint via Secondary Auth. permission for Clients.

The secondary user name will then be displayed in the list of Client Sessions, in brackets after the primary user name under which the terminal is launched.
