Logging in and out

Tap the launcher icon to start {VAR(flex)}. Type your username and password for the {VAR(company)} network and press the CONNECT button to log in to the {VAR(company)} server.

To make {VAR(flex)} log in automatically, specify the User name and Password options and enable the Autologin option in the application settings.

If you want to change your password, use the Reset password item in the main menu.

Connection security details

All {VAR(company)} applications use an encrypted connection that enables authentication, session management, and access control mechanisms. All data between clients and servers is exchanged through encrypted channels. This protects the connection from active eavesdropping and passive disclosure in the network traffic. It also prevents session fixation attacks during the authentication or authorization processes.

In order to manage access to enterprise networks, the {VAR(company)} administrator has the ability to assign rights and permissions to any {VAR(company)} user in {VAR(commander)}. Any {VAR(company)} client must be configured with proper connection settings before attempting to log in.

All important connection settings in {VAR(flex)} are contained in the Settings menu. For details about configuring them, see Application settings.

HTTPS

The {VAR(flex)} client application uses the HTTPS protocol for communication with the server. This makes data exchange robust and secure.

Voice encryption

By default, all {VAR(company)} communication traffic is encrypted with TLS using 256-bit AES-SHA. The client and the server authenticate using digital certificates. The standard {VAR(company)} server does not support voice encryption. However, the encryption option can be used on demand. If the specific encryption algorithm is not defined, {VAR(company)} will offer an Authenticated-Encryption Algorithm with blockcipher: AES128, AES192, and AES256 specified in ISO/IEC 19772:2009.

Secure logout

To improve safety, {VAR(flex)} provides an additional authentication mechanism on logout. This is controlled through {VAR(commander)} and can be enabled by the {VAR(company)} network administrator. The feature forces the user to enter a specific password for logout.

QR code-based authentication

QR code-based authentication can be useful in some operating conditions and has the additional advantage of applying preconfigured {VAR(flex)} settings.

  1. Tap the QR code icon on the login screen of the application. You will be prompted to scan a code with your camera in a few moments.
  2. Focus the camera and scan the code. The new {VAR(flex)} settings are applied automatically.
  3. Tap the CONNECT button to authenticate.
