Sevan Networks Logo Identity Authentication for Web Security
home solutions products white papers about us
"The product relies on public key authentication to increase user convenience and strengthen security. However, deployment and management are simple and the cost of ownership is low because the product doesn’t require an infrastructure like other public key based solutions."

Delegated Administration

Chances are your web sites hold information and processes controlled by different functions within your organization or even external organizations. The WSA reflects this reality by supporting fully delegated administration.

As the administrators partition your web site into independently administrated resources, they can define which individuals can perform which administrative functions for the resources. Some or all administrative functions can be delegated to individual departments or even employees in other organizations.

WSA administration takes place through a simple, web interface, so anyone who is comfortable with a browser can manage users.

The WSA authenticates administrators though their certificates.


  • Accuracy is improved because administration, especially user administration, can be 100% delegated to those who best know the needs of the information or application.

  • Efficiency is improved because the responsible administrators can directly affect changes without going through intermediaries.

  • Liability is reduced because the responsibility (hence liability) can be delegated to the legal entities that own the information or application.
