Airlock Secure Session Transfer

To make Microsoft SharePoint more secure, Ergon has introduced Secure Session Transfer (SST). SharePoint is a document management system which allows accessing, editing and managing documents within a web browser. By clicking on a document link in SharePoint, documents can be opened in applications such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint. Without Secure Session Transfer (SST) each time the user does this, he or she is presented with a login page by Airlock’s authentication service. SST fills this gap and allows those third party applications to use the user’s authenticated browser session. To this end SST periodically executes a JavaScript which updates the expiry date of the persistent session cookie. Because Word, Excel and PowerPoint can access that persistent cookie, they do not need to authenticate again when accessing files in SharePoint.
