SecureDomino: Authentication and Intrusion Prevention for Lotus Domino

SecureDomino is the universal authentication and security tool for Domino web servers.

By extending authentication options beyond the Domino Directory, SecureDomino allows a broader usage of Domino servers.

SecureDomino enhances data security and helps to enforce Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Domino servers with activated HTTP task are protected by preventing unauthorized users from gaining access.


Lotus Domino authentication has several shortcomings:
  • Even with the Domino Directory Assistance and the Active Directory Synchronization users must still handle multiple passwords.
  • Domino does not log authentication successfully and failed attempts efficiently.
  • Domino does not support IP-based authentication.
  • Domino does not allow the definition of log-on hours

SecureDomino Authentication Features

  • Designated (SPNEGO) Authentication Server (new in R7!)
    Use one central SPNGEO activated server to handle automated authentication even on non-SPNEGO supported Platforms and Domino-Versions like Linux or Solaris.
  • LDAP Authentication
    Authenticate against Microsoft or any other LDAP directory and thus eliminate the need for users to remember multiple passwords.
  • Authentication Logging
    Log sign-in attempts (either all, successful only or failed attempts only) for analysis, documentation and user-information.
  • IP-based Authentication
    Identify and authenticate users (and proxies) through their IP-address automatically.
  • Log-on Hours Definition
    Restrict signing in, e.g.: restrict log-in to business days and hours from 8am to 5pm.

Intrusion Prevention

Lotus Notes and Domino offer extensive and mature security architecture. Nevertheless, a Domino server in the Intra-, Extra- or Internet is exposed to many risks:
  • Browser clients can endlessly attempt to sign in to a Domino Server. Retrieving a user's password is just a matter of time.
  • Hackers can access sensitive data or cause a heavy server load by simply using hacking tools provided in the internet (Brute Force Attacks, Denial-of-Service).
  • URLĀ“s like $DefaultNav and $DefaultView often reveal much more information than intended.
  • Loading the HTTP-server task makes all database accessible through browser-clients, not just the desired ones.

SecureDomino Intrusion Prevention Features

Prevent Brute-Force Hacking and Password Guessing Attempts
Effective protection against hacking and denial of service-attacks through HTTP lockout. IPs and user accounts are locked after a number of failed attempts. Unlock on a scheduled interval or have administrators unlock manually.
  • Forgotten Password Handling
    Users may request new http passwords and have them send to their Notes-mail accounts.
  • Access Restrictions
    Restrict http-access with white- and black-lists to directories and databases. Have all other databases accessed through Lotus Notes clients only.
  • Redirection
    Create redirections for custom and unwanted URL-commands like $$DefaultNav, $$DefaultView, %%Source%%. Works even with unicode characters.
