PGPuam is an enhancement to the standard AppleShare IP User Access Methods (UAM) that enables a user to perform two-way strongly authenticated logins to an AppleShare IP server from a Mac OS client. The PGPuam system consists of two major components: a client and a server plug-in. - - Since the same key and passphrase used to sign e-mail messages is also used for server access, the user need only remember one passphrase. This is done without the risks associated with passphrase caches. - - Strong user authentication is provided by cryptographic digital signatures. - - Since the user maintains the only secret material in the system, compromising a server's user database results in limited damage.
