With SecureDomino users or organizations can be authenticated upon their IP-address without having to enter username and password. This functionality, seamless at first sight, allows to use the Domino server in completely new situations. For example:
Company A and company B have merged. They do not have an private network yet. Company A can therefore use an internet server and authenticate all employees of company B with the IP-address of their firewall. Employees of company B could therefore read the merger-information's without having to authenticate.
Company X offers to their few but important customers a special information database. The offer would not be accepted, if users had to authenticate manually.
System X is supposed to read a XML-export from a read-restricted database on a server with session based authentication.
Of course, the IP-based authentication can not be used in highly critical situations. But in many instances, IP-based authentication might be a helpful alternative to manual authentication using username and password.
