Taking Web Password Filler On The Road

23 04 2013

The same Web Password Filler that you use on your desktop browser is also available for your mobile devices.

For iPhones and iPads, first you will want to create the Web Filler on Safari on your Mac desktop, then after using iCloud Bookmark sync with your iPhone the Web Password Filler will be ready for use.

After signing into Secret Server on your phone, browse to the site that you want to log in to. Once there, open your bookmarks and select the Web Password Filler. This will make the it appear exactly how it appears in the desktop browser.

Secret Server iPhone app does not use keychain

15 03 2011

There have been some movies going around lately showing how to compromise an iPhone and reveal all the stored passwords in the Apple keychain in minutes.

David from our engineering team talks about how the Secret Server password app for iPhone is not susceptible to this type of attack because it uses its own files for encryption along with a randomly generated key that includes device specific information.

This will allow you to browse folders for customers, teams, servers or different parts of your organization and easily find Secrets within those folders. You are also able to search by folder, create new folders and assign Secrets to folders.

We are also working on offline caching capabilities for the next iPhone app release. Stay posted – the new version will be out before the end of May 2010!





Bringing Enterprise Password Management to the iPhone

23 06 2009

iphoneWhile there are many iPhone password managers available for home and personal use, Secret Server Password Manager iPhone edition brings privileged password management to the IT professional. And it’s free! With an already-established password management platform, Secret Server iPhone provides the security and convenience needed for you to efficiently manage and track your organization’s most critical passwords from your phone and PC.

Here’s a look under the hood

The Secret Server Password Management iPhone app allows you to view, edit, and create Secrets for multiple accounts. You can also see which Secrets were recently accessed, add favorites, and lock the application with a pin code. If you lose your iPhone, you are still be able to access your Secrets from a computer because the application synchronizes with both Secret Server (installed) and Secret Server Online.

The applications that Apple delivers with the iPhone all share a consistent UI and provide an intuitive user experience, so we went to great lengths to emulate this in our application. For example, when you press a table cell and are brought to a new screen, you expect to see a button in the top left that returns you to the previous screen. You also expect certain animations and screen layouts in other familiar situations. One of the challenges of programming the Secret Server iPhone application was meeting these expectations while still providing a powerful web-based application.

What makes iPhone programming different from .NET programming is that you have to be more particular about performance and memory management. iPhones are far less powerful than servers, and large memory allocations should be avoided at all costs. For example, in our application the same memory block is used whenever a Secret is created or edited. This may make the code a little harder to read, but it provides a great boost in performance.

In conclusion, writing the iPhone application was a creative, challenging experience and introduced us to a new language, API, operating system, and way of thinking about code. I am very excited about the Secret Server Password Manager iPhone edition, and will be using it on my iPhone every day.
