User portal authentication options

You can allow device users to authenticate to the user portal with:

  • A user name and password – These are the credentials a device user uses to register a device with Ivanti EPMM.
  • An identity certificate from a smart card – This authentication method is supported only on desktop computers. It is not supported on mobile devices or Firefox browser.

You can allow one or both of these authentication mechanisms. You make your selection in the Ivanti EPMM System Manager Security > Advanced > Portal Authentication page. For information about how to configure the user portal authentication options, see “Advanced: Portal authentication” in the Ivanti EPMM System Manager Guide.
