Secure your Linux operating systems with SurePassID Universal MFA.

Securing Linux systems with Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM)

At SurePassID, we’re accustomed to working with enterprise customers that are using Linux systems within their IT infrastructures. Whether it’s Red Hat Enterprise Linux or specialized telecom distros, we enable customers to secure system login with MFA. SurePassID Universal MFA has been deployed on Linux servers and workstations spanning x86-64, Power ISA, ARM64, and IBM Z architectures.

SurePassID Universal MFA leverages the Linux Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) specification. PAM enables organizations to add strong authentication using OATH or FIDO authentication to protect any Linux system via direct login, SSH, and other Linux apps. The SurePassID PAM automatically interfaces with the SurePassID Universal MFA platform, providing strong authentication credentials for all servers and workstations within the enterprise.

The SurePassID PAM is downloadable source code available from a private GitHub repository. There are instructions for building, configuring and installing on Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, and iOS platforms. Customers have also adapted the SurePassID PAM to other PAM-based Linux systems.
