Authenticating and controlling connections
ALCASAR forbids access to non-authenticated users (login + password). It behaves like an access lock to all Internet services.
Control of connections permits for example to define users and/or users groups authorized to connect. For each users (or users groups) it is possible to define the validity period of connection, weekly time slot connections as well as maximum on-line time connection, speed or maximum amount of data that can be downloaded. To manage users, ALCASAR is based on an internal database which can be connected to an external directory (LDAP or Active Directory ©).
