CA-TPX provides support for Secured Signon using Pass Tickets. The use of Pass Tickets eliminates the transmission of passwords across network facilities in clear text.
A pass ticket is a one-time only password substitute that is automatically generated by an authentication server, such as CA's Single Signon Option or IBM's Network Security Program or on behalf of a client workstation requesting access to a mainframe application, such as TPX.
Once a user is signed on to TPX, Pass Tickets may also be generated for applications subsequently accessed through TPX.
