To access any Blacksands protected Service a User must first be Authenticated, Authorized, and then Routed. This process is unique to Blacksands and attempting to access a Blacksands protected Service in any other way is not possible.
The process is quite simple.
- A legitimate User with an installed Blacksands Certificate on the device they are using, proceeds to a Blacksands Authorizer (https://client.blacksandsecurity.com),
- provides his/her Certificate,
- Password, and then
- selects the protected Service desired.
- A new window will be opened in the User’s browser, and a point-to-point encrypted connection is established from the User’s device to the protected Service.
