Lotus Notes Signing ID Management with Ironclad Security
Secure ID delegation removes costly delays from Lotus Notes development and administration
Common problems with signatures in Lotus Notes and Domino
When an administrator holds the keys to your organization's signing IDs, developers must wait for the 'rubber stamp' for even the most trivial changes to applications. There is no provision for even basic delegation. This creates major bottlenecks disrupting the workflow of both administrators and developers. Another problem is that it's nearly impossible to see what has been signed in Notes and there is no audit trail to follow the use of signing IDs.
Verify all design signatures
Choose which design elements to sign
Delegate signing IDs
"The top benefits for me are: The ability to sign design elements by a trusted ID without having to grant access to the physical ID or password."
A signature is a digital security stamp associated with a user ID. Notes security requires applications to be ‘signed.’ It's considered a best practice to use a central secure signing ID for an organization's application signatures. This secure ID is typically held by a Lotus Notes and Domino administrator.
Ytria signEZ is a solution for Notes signature management and delegation, here's what it lets you do:
Take control of your design element signature process
Securely delegate design element signing to developers—lets you remove bottlenecks but set strict rules so security is never compromised
Quickly assess the design element signatures for any database—get access to important information that Lotus Notes and Domino alone won't reveal
Expand your administration capabilities—take advantage of practical, time-saving features that are not part of the standard Lotus Domino toolset
See all your design signatures laid out in an easy-to-read table for quick and easy auditing: A flexible grid shows all the design elements (and their signatures) in a database so you can visually verify and compare your signatures and make sure everything is signed correctly. This is impossible to do without signEZ.
Sort and group design elements to see what's important: For a better understanding of signatures tailored to your needs, signEZ's interface lets you customize the way information is displayed. For example: you can group by ‘Signature’ to see exactly who has signed which design elements in a database.
Sign only the design elements that need to be signed: Just point-and-click to choose which design elements to sign or audit—you can even set filters to process (or explicitly avoid processing) designs with specified signatures.
Automate the signing process and start signing (or auditing) multiple databases on multiple servers in a single operation: Batch sign (or audit) all your applications to avoid human error.
Avoid switch ID interruptions when signing: Sign any database with any ID you have access to through an ‘easy switch ID’ mode—this means you don't need to close your current Notes/Domino session—a huge time saver.
Delegate signing ID rights but set strict conditions and never compromise security: Avoid wasting precious time waiting for a signature to be applied to a design. Securely delegate any signing ID and provide tight rules on who can use them and where.
Export signature log data for backup, reporting and analysis: signEZ supports a number of file formats for exporting signature log information that will let you know exactly who used the ID; when they used it; and where they used it.
