Discover how to enhance the experience of IBM TAM E-SSO with stronger Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) using the DS3 Authentication Server.

With the IBM TAM E-SSO, users are able to login using 1-factor authentication using user ID and password, or Two-Factor Authentication using Vasco tokens, Biometric cards and etc. By adding on the DS3 Authentication Server, the users will now be able to make use of a wider range of tokens available on the market, thus allowing the users to have the flexibility for deployment based on their requirements.

Enhancing your IBM TAM E-SSO deployment to integrate with the DS3 Authentication Server can be achieved in 2 simple steps. -


  • Installing DS3 customized GINA
  • Rolling out authentication tokens to users and using the token self-service features within the DS3 Authentication Server to migrate user log on to Two Factor Authentication at their own pace


The DS3 Authentication Server is the complete Two Factor Authentication solution to provide multi-token strong authentication with end-to-end security for passwords & highly sensitive information to secure electronic transactions. The flexible token management system allows users a choice of different Two Factor Authentication including One-Time Password (OTP) sent over SMS, Java midlet software OTP tokens, OATH tokens, and hardware VASCO, RSA OTP tokens.
