What is Autoform?

 

Autoform lets you login to different sites based on a single login/password. It is a client-side alternative to Microsoft's Passport and Sun's forthcoming similar technology.

 

Why another technology, when I already have a Passport logon?

 

Microsoft and Sun technology is based on alliances between web sites who agree to tied up with either vendor. Autoform is independent of which server-side technology your favorite site uses, and works with all web sites _today_. You don't need to wait for your favorite websites to convert to either technology.

Even better you can integrate Autoform with your Windows login today, just like Microsoft Passport would, when it's finally released.

 
Why would I deploy Autoform in a Commercial / Business firm? It's meant for logging in to email sites...right?
No, it's meant to be deployed in an Intranet environment, rather it was created for that purpose. Autoform provides you with Integrated Authentication services, to provide users with a Unified Logon.
 
How can I use Autoform within an Intranet?
You can use Autoform in an Intranet environment to provide Integrated Authentication services. If all your applications on the Intranet are web based, you can tie in all associated logins and passwords to _one_ Windows NT or 2000 domain account. When you login to your computer using your Windows NT or 2000 account, Autoform restores all your applications.
 
How can I integrate Autoform with my Windows login?
Choose 'Integrated Authentication' in 'Configuration'. Restart Autoform.
 

How secure is my information?

Autoform sends _NO_ personal data to anyone. At no point any information is sent even if you are unregistered, trying to check for updates etc. All your information is stored in an encrypted format on your physical computer.

 

Will it work from within my corporate firewall, and through my personal proxy/firewall?

Yes, as long as your Internet Explorer browser is configured correctly.

 

How fast is it? Will it slow down my computer?

 

Autoform just sits in the system tray and consumes 0% CPU time. It triggers into action when you choose a site to logon, and returns back to hibernation.

 

When will it be available for other client platforms?

 

Research is on to port it to Linux, under an open-source license. Pls. volunteer to help me port it, as I am new to linux programming. Currently I am contemplating to create it as a KPart for the Konqueror web browser on KDE.

 

Is it free? What features are disabled in the free version?

 

There is only one version of the software in which all features are fully enabled, and it's free for home and educational use. Commercial and governmental agencies must register after a trial period of 30 days.

 

How much does a commercial license cost?

Please see the 'Buy' section.
