VIP Remembered Device in a feature that provides an alternative form of security for users without requiring traditional hardware or mobile credentials. Remembered Devices use unique device identification to determine whether a user is attempting to authenticate from either a device registered to the user or a device that matches identifiable characteristics of a remembered device.
Remembered Devices provide two methods of device identification:
■ Trusted Device provides strong authentication using a certificate stored on the user's device to identify it during a normal sign-in. The user can select to trust their device from the VIP Self-Service Portal or when signing in. This "registers" the laptop or PC by downloading a plug-in that installs a security certificate. The certificate binds the user's device to a unique ID. The unique ID becomes an assigned credential for that device and associates that user to that ID and credential.
The VIP Remembered Device policy can be enabled and configured within our VIP Manager, as described in the Remembered Device guide.
