    ESET Authentication Server (EAS) serves as an alternative mean for authenticating computers in the network. By default, network authentication is accomplished based on the network adapter configuration but one can choose EAS as the primary mean for authentication.

    If a new network is detected, the user can choose between strict and "allow sharing" mode. With the latter, an automatically authenticated zone will be generated based on the most suitable network parameter (ie. based on the DHCP or DNS server, etc.).

    The automatically authenticated zone can subsequently be edited in the zone setup and you can change the parameters based on which it authenticates. Here you can also change the type of authentication from LAN configuration to ESET Authentication Server.

    The authenticated zones can be binded to specific firewall profiles.

    If you decide to use ESET Authentication Server, download it from the ESET download page or click here. It needs to be installed on a computer that is permanently turned on and all computers in LAN can access it. After installation, you'll need to choose the zone name, specify the location for the private key and generate it. Afterwards start the EAS service, import the generated public key on workstations that you want to authenticate against EAS (this can be accomplished by the Configuration editor from ERA4).

    ESET Authentication Server is described in the ESET Smart Security manual available on the download page.
