We were just notified that we were awarded yet another patent for our work on translating legacy authentication requests into Kerberos requests. This is a pretty key and important area that allows us to take, for example, LDAP requests and authentications and return Kerberos tickets to implement single sign-on. It’s patent #7,904,949 “Apparatus, systems and methods to provide authentication services to a legacy application ”. Congrats to John Bowers and Matt Peterson our illustrious inventors. The patented work shows up in Quest Authentication Services and further demonstrates the innovative work that has been put into our products.
