Introduction

idenprotect Core Platform Admin Console is the web interface for managing idenprotect devices and allocating them to users. The Admin Console runs on an embedded Tomcat application server and it is launched along with idenprotect Core Platform.

Supported web browsers

The following web browsers are supported: -

  • Internet Explorer / Microsoft Edge (version 10 onwards)
  • Google Chrome (version 61 onwards)
  • Mozilla Firefox (version 55 onwards)

Accessing the login screen

The Admin Console only accepts HTTPS connections secured by SSL/TLS as specified in the server.xml Tomcat configuration file. You can Edit the configuration file to align with your organisation’s security policy. We recommend restricting connections to TLS 1.2 for security reasons.

In normal idenprotect Core Platform installations, the Management Console URL is set as the domain name of the idenprotect Core Platform, which is usually in the format https://iden.<mydomain>.com.

Default Credentials

For versions 2.5.4 and later, the default administrator user account is:

  • User name: ADMIN
  • Password: 1DENpr0t3ct!

If you have an older installation, the default administrator user account is:

  • User name: ADMIN
  • Password: 1detearAdm1n

IMPORTANT: You should always change the administrator login credentials after the initial idenprotect Core Platform installation. See Changing Admin Passwords

Using the Admin Console, it is possible to:

  • View the status of your applications and connections

Licence

idenprotect Core Platform uses a Licence to determine the number of Users and Devices permitted. The initial installation will come with a test user you can use to ensure that everything is working. But prior to doing any additional configuration, you should Activate your Licence. If you do not have one yet, please contact your idenprotect partner or email us at support@idenprotect.com
