Specifications include, but are not limited to: Federate Office 365 with SAML. This should support mobile applications, multi-factor authentication and most other federation-enabled applications. * *-WS-Federation could alternatively be chosen based to integrate legacy applications that do not support Modern Authentication. Note that Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) cannot be used with WS-Federation. Implement Kerberos with the Active Directory domain to retain automatic login to Office 365. Currently PGW does not use AD as an identity source in NAM. We would add AD as an LDAP source, thus increasing flexibility with login methods and attribute values. Non-domain joined computers / users would be prompted with a familiar PGW login screen. Using Kerberos fallback authentication when a Kerberos ticket is not present, it will prompt for login. Additional Enhancements Currently PGW has a single node installation of NAM (1 Administration Console, 1 ID Provider, and 1 Access Gateway). They have recently acquired a load balancer in the DMZ.PGW would require help building and adding secondary nodes to the cluster for high availability / capacity. This is critical as once deployed, a node failure could make critical systems unreachable impacting users directly. PGW is evaluating DUO two-factor authentication. DUO can be integrated directly with IDM via a custom Java authentication class, which enables seamless NAM integration with DUO. PGW will require the class deployed and help with evaluation by enabling it in the test / dev environments. Alternatively, since PGW is licensed for Advanced Authentication, DUO will be made one of the authentication methods. Advanced authentication can provide greater flexibility as can configure even more secure use cases for both simple and complex authentication scenarios.
