Secret Double Octopus enables IT admins to authenticate their SSH connections using a high-assurance, password-free authenticator instead of passwords.

All that’s required is a simple configuration that redirects SSH authentication requests to the Octopus Authentication Server, after which admins can simply tap the Octopus Authenticator on their mobile device to securely authenticate an SSH connection. The Octopus Authenticator implements provably unbreakable cryptography that is highly resistant to common attacks such as phishing, MitM and cracking. Octopus Authentication was built for enterprise customers, which means it is fully integrated with Microsoft Active Directory and supports access to all enterprise resources, whether on-premise, remotely accessed or in the cloud.

Leverage your Active Directory

Octopus domain authentication works seamlessly with your existing Active Directory service, allowing your organization to go completely password-free.

Secret Double Octopus versus other authentication methods

Improve your security posture

Secret Double Octopus’s secure algorithm ensures that the authentication process is safe from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks. Other MFA solutions that are based on one-time codes, whether generated by a hardware or software token, sent in-band or out-of-band, are susceptible to phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Leverage your Active Directory

Simplify authentication

Using the Octopus Authenticators, employees can access all their enterprise resources. Designed for the needs of the enterprise, the Octopus Authenticator is one solution for authenticating remote access users, access to web or cloud services, and logons to enterprise networks.
