Release Notes for Softerra Adaxes 2017.1

Version: 3.8.14218.0
Release Date: May 18, 2017

Adaxes 2017.1 brings a major extension to the Password Self-Service functionality that allows users to reset passwords on domain-joined laptops that are outside a corporate network or have no Internet access whatsoever.

Offsite Password Self-Service

When users forget their passwords away from company’s premises, Adaxes allows them to reset it from a domain-joined laptop that has no connection to a domain controller. After that users can log in to the laptop with the new password. Adaxes does that by securely updating local credentials cache on users’ machines.

Offline Password Self-Service

Adaxes now allows users to reset passwords on domain-joined laptops that are completely offline, by using their phones (or other devices with Internet access). When users start Adaxes Password Self-Service on an offline machine, they are given a request key and a link that needs to be opened on their phone. There they need to undergo a standard Adaxes AD password reset procedure by answering security questions and/or using SMS verification.

Then they are given a response key that needs to be entered to the offline laptop alongside the new password. After the key is verified, Adaxes updates local credentials cache on the laptop and allows users to log in.

Enhanced Password Self-Service Performance

Adaxes Password Self-Service now caches its settings on users’ computers. Because of that all delays when loading the Windows logon screen with ‘Forgot your password’ option enabled are eliminated.

Support for Send SMS REST API

The latest version adds support of REST API for Send SMS functionality. It allows more reliable and universal interaction with SMS providers like Clickatell. Now you can also configure maximum SMS length sent by Adaxes.
