Login to Infinicenter Console

Login to Infinicenter Console

Open a Web browser and open the Infinicenter Console.

Sign In

  1. Type your User Name.
  2. Select Remember me to pre-fill the user name on subsequent visits.
  3. Click Continue.

Linked Organizations

For organizations that have linked to other trusted organizations, Infinicenter Console prompts to select the desired organization.

  1. Select the desired Organization.
  2. Select Remember me to pre-fill the user name on subsequent visits.
  3. Click Continue.

Organizational Authentication Requirements

Upon submitting the user name, Infinicenter Console determines the appropriate authentication method for the organization and requests authentication in accordance with that authentication method. Continue with the procedures depending on the authentication method.

Password Authentication

If the user name submitted belongs to a user required to use password authentication, Infinicenter Console presents the login screen to permit entry of a password.

  1. Type your Password.
  2. Click Sign In.

Infinicenter Console presents the user's default page.

Certificate-Based Authentication

If the user name submitted belongs to a user required to use certificate-based authentication, the identity provider, the server that verifies certificates used for certificate-based authentication, requests the certificate from the browser. The browser, in turn, requests the certificate from the operating system. The response of the operating system varies; a Windows-based system is shown.

Multiple Certificates Available

If the operating system stores more than one certificate, it requests that the user select the certificate to submit.

    Select a Certificate dialog appears.

  1. Select the certificate to submit.
  2. Click OK.

Certificate Selected

Once a certificate is selected, or if only one certificate is available, the operating system requests the personal identification number (PIN) to unlock the certificate.

    Security dialog appears.

  1. Type a PIN.
  2. Click OK.

SSL Site Security Warning

The first time a user authenticates with certificate-based authentication, the user's browser may not have the SSL certificate of the identity provider and may present a warning message to that effect. This is not an attack; permit the identity provider to proceed.

  1. The browser does not know the SSL certificate of the authentication server.
  2. Note: The certificate is called a SSL certificate but Enterprise Cloud no longer uses any SSL protocols, all of which are deprecated. Only Transport Layer Security (TLS) is supported as a secure transport protocol.

  3. Click Proceed anyway.

Infinicenter Console presents the user's default page.
