What to choose in the shop, upon purchase of a software password generator?

Upon purchase of a software password generator, the buyer is required to specify the operating system on which the software is to be installed. This is not the operating system of the computer from which the user intends to connect to the Technion, but the operating system of the device on which the password generator will be installed.

i.e. You will usually choose the Android or iOS operating system, but you can also choose the operating system of your PC, e.g. Windows or Mac.

Examples:

Using the smartphone as a password generator (recommended):
A user who wishes to use his/her iPhone as a password generator will choose, upon purchase, the IOS operating systems.
With a password generator installed on the iPhone, you can create a one-time password:

create a one time password

The user will enter this password in the dialer that is installed on his/her PC to connect to the Technion network.

Using a personal computer as a password generator:
If, upon purchase of the  software password generator, the user chooses Windows (or Mac) operating system, this means that he/she will use the PC both to generate a login password and to connect to the Technion network;

RSA securID

PulseSecure

 

If the user chose his/her personal computer to generate a login password, he/she will have to carry the PC along with them in order to generate a password every time he/she wishes to connect to the Technion.
If, however, he/she chose the smartphone as a password generator, he/she will be able to connect from anywhere, as the login password is generated using the phone, regardless of the computer from which they are about to connect.

Please note: Before you start working, please read the Procedures for Technion network resources usage.
