User self registration

user-self-registrationWe started the work on privacyIDEA 2.10. The central idea with privacyIDEA 2.10 is the user self registration. This allows previously unkown users to register with privacyIDEA. I.e. during this process a new user account is created.

privacyIDEA service

This can be used for different scenarios.

At the moment privacyIDEA connects to an existing user store with all the users of your company. In 99% of all cases this is the right behaviour, since noone likes to create users anew.

But in certain cases like when running privacyIDEA as a service, you do not know in advance who will be using it. So you need some means to either create users or let a user register himself. The good thing is, that privacyIDEA already lets you manage users, so that basic functionality is already there. But in addition a to-be-user now will be able to create an account on his own.

Enterprise scenario

There might also be certain scenarios in an enterprise environment. If the company wants to separate two factor authentication from the default user base or if the company wants to provide two factor authentication for previously not known guest accounts.

Stay tuned

So now we started on user self registration in privacyIDEA 2.10 which is due on February 11th. You are welcome to add any of your ideas to the github issue or simply keep track by joining the Google Group or following privacyIDEA on Github.
