iFriend for Service Managers

The iFriend service allows users external to the School of Informatics to obtain credentials allowing access to some of our systems. As such, it is important for service managers to ensure that iFriend users don't obtain access to systems which they should not be using.

iFriend for the Web

iFriend users will be able to access DICE web services which are authenticated via cosign. If you do not wish iFriend users to access your service, you should either set the CosignRequireFactor directive to INF.ED.AC.UK, or you should implement authorization controls, either to a specific list, or denying users with an '@' or '%' sign in their username.

iFriend for the command line

iFriend users cannot currently use command line applications with their iFriend accounts - this document will be updated when this functionality becomes available.
