Data security is an important part of the internet and the password as a security measure fails to cover this fully. This has prompted various service providers to offer alternative forms of authentication along with the passwords. Red Hat already provides an authentication mechanism for connections to its VPN, the Linux company also implements security assertion markup language (SAML) applications for data security.
To strengthen this further, they have recently adopted Gemalto’s Protiva token management technology. The solution takes care of the hassles that result due to password resets therefore reducing the costs from help-desk calls.
