Will the WiKID token run on a USB Token?

Yes. It can run on any USB drive and because we use asymmetric keys and the key pairs will be generated on the USB drive, the distribution of tokens is much easier. Any user can get any fresh USB drive and use it.

What is the base architecture of WiKID Authentication?

WiKID Strong Authentication consists of two main elements, the WiKID Strong Authentication Server  and the WiKID Two-factor Client for user devices. The WiKID Strong Authentication Server interfaces with various Network Clients, such as firewalls, VPN services, Citrix, directories or applications via Protocol Modules, such as RADIUS, LDAP, SMB or the WiKID Authentication Protocol, an SSL-encapsulated API for web-enabled application integration.

When a user wants to login,say to a VPN service, they enter a PIN into the WiKID Software token client, it is encrypted by the public key of the WiKID server and sent to the server. If the encryption is valid, the PIN is correct and the account is active, the server returns the one-time passcode encrypted by the Client's public key. The user then enter their username and one-time passcode into the VPN client. The VPN service forwards the credentials to the WiKID server via a protocol such as Radius for validation.

How does WiKID work with Active Directory?

When do I need a commercial license?

If you want support, if you want one of the wireless software tokens clients, or if you want RADIUS support, you should get the Enterprise version. In general, for enterprise deployments, we recommend the Enterprise version.  Or, if you like the project and just want to support us, buy the Enterprise version.

What's the difference between the Community release and Enterprise release?
