A new version of MuseKnowledge Proxy, the result of constantly adding features, is available now for download, trial and purchase/upgrade.
Sources with poor SSL configuration, and with error messages in the Server Name Indication extensions and yielding “handshake alert: unrecognized_name” are also working now through a JDK workaround to the global static Virtual Machine setting.
On integration side, login improvements and more are now offered. The HMAC login is used together with other login modules whose parameters in addition to authentication are being used during the signature process. HMAC (keyed-hash message authentication code) signed and time limited links are securing login links with credentials by restricted their usage from a certain portal for a brief period (e.g. 30 seconds).
SAML 2.0 authentication as a Service Provider in a multi-tenant fashion is now fully supported in Muse Knowledge Proxy, both for integration purposes orfor standalone deployments. All products supporting SAML 2.0 in Identity Provider mode (e.g. ADFS, Okta, Shibboleth, OpenAM, Efecte EIM or Ping Federate) are now compatible with MuseKnowledge Proxy. We performed successful tests with the Shibboleth IDP implementation (with Open LDAP and with Active Directory at the other end), Simple SAML PHP IDP, with SSOCircle IDP and with Shibboleth Discovery Service implementation. Some of the key features of the Muse Knowledge Proxy SAML implementation include:
In addition to the existing support for enabling remote rewritten content to be served using gzip compression, Muse Knowledge Proxy now includes support to serve the local content encoded using gzip; hence content originating to MuseKnowledge Proxy, such as the application interfaces is now served using gzip compression.
The detailed list of changes is available in the Muse Knowledge Proxy Release Notes PDF Document and the new features are described in the manuals that are part of the distribution. As usual we offer a Free 30 Day Trial period to fully evaluate the new version of MuseKnowledge Proxy. You can request a Trial License Key by simply filling in the trial form here.
