Secret Server iOS 7 Mobile App Upgrade

7 10 2013

As iOS users may have noticed, our Secret Server app received an upgrade with the recent release of iOS 7. The most noticeable sign the app was upgraded is a fresh user interface. However, there are a few other aspects of the latest update that are worth highlighting.

View & Edit Restricted Secrets
Previously, users could not view restricted Secrets from the mobile app. Now, Secrets that have the advanced security settings Require Comment, Require Approval and CheckOut are also accessible from your mobile device.

CheckOut

When viewed through the mobile app, Secrets that require a comment will receive an audit entry called WEBSERVICEVIEWCOMMENT to help differentiate comments in the audit log:

ViewWebserviceView_iOS app update post_2013

These restricted Secrets will not be cached. Therefore, a user must re-enter information after a 5-minute period (for Require Comment) or when the approval period ends (for Require Approval and CheckOut).

Sneak Preview: Secret Server Launcher for Mac

11 09 2012

The Thycotic Dev Team is hard at work with new functionality for Mac!  While I don’t have all the details, I do have a few items I can share.  Currently, we’re looking at an “end-of-Q4 2012” release date.  This date may slip, but it’s accurate for now.

Details I can share:

  • The Launcher will support Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome.
  • The underlying technology uses is a NPAPI plugin. A quick install of a plugin is all it takes to enable the launcher for Mac.
  • Will support SSH and a built-in SSH client will be used.
  • Will support Microsoft Remote Desktop provided the Mac Remote Desktop application is installed.  See Figure 1 for the screenshot of Remote Desktop.  Figure 2 shows the Launcher Helper application in Firefox.

Features due out after the initial release (available in later updates):

  • Custom Launchers will be available in a subsequent update.  Remote Desktop and SSH will be the only launchers supported initially.
  • Session Recording functionality will be available in a subsequent updates.

The Dev Team is interested in hearing your comments, please post your questions and thoughts below!
