  1. Support Apple Open Directory with SGN

    OSX client based on Apple Open Directory should be fully manageable with the SGN Management Center.
    FileVault2 and File Encryption policy should be fully applicable for those kinds of objects (machines and users).
    Use cases like re-image of client or re-name of user should be part of implementation.

  2. SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs

    SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs. Customers provide feedback that if the SG Credential Provider will not show up when trying to login a manual restart of SGNAuthService will help.
    So why not using our own watchdog to get rid of this issue?

  4. SGN Installer should always log with msi-Paramter /L*vx

    The SafeGuard client installers should log every installation and uninstallation with the paramter /L*vx to a documented folder.
    In case of error and/or compatibility issues the behaviour would be logged.

  5. SGFE for Mac - policy vs. interface

    Some attention to the interface would seem necessary to address perceived "shortcomings" in the product regarding external media (thumb drives...)
    Background:
    Policy set to always encrypt. Dialog box pops up asking if user wants to encrypt.
    Currently:
    No encryption takes place until the dialog box is addressed even though policy is to always encrypt.
    This leaves a window of opportunity for the user to not encrypt the drive/data. Arguably that is nice, in the event the drive is not yours, and it would be problematic to encrypt data on a drive that is from a user outside of the organization... …

  6. AD Sync check

    Our customer had an issue recently, with the SGN console not able to push the AD modifications to the SQL database ; as a consequence, all the users went out of the domain, and were not having the regular policy. Customer found the root cause of this issue, which is the adding of a domain in self-reg, with the Netbios name "XX" (existing one), followed with the renaming of the correct one. We know that this action is not done by our APIs, which are only getting the information.

    In order to no longer have this situation reproduced (it happened…

  8. Display failed login attempts after SG CP authentication

    After user authenticates through SG CP, a Windows GPO can trigger a display of the last successful and unsuccessful login attempts. The SG CP shows the successful attempts correct, but has a count of zero for correct logins. Displaying this information works correct when Windows CP is used. The information is stored in the OS but the SG CP doesn't appear to pull the failed amount correct.
