RICOH Card Authentication Package

Card-based user authentication and permissions management

The single Platform for Smart Process Appreciations

About the Card Authentication Package

The Card Authentication Package provides an automated process for authenticating a user for access to multifunction printer (MFP) features and functionality, leveraging standard proximity card reader technology. Installations with greater than about 500 users also require the Card Authentication Server software.

Major Applications

 
MFP Access Control printer management to eliminate unauthorized usage
 
Data security protecting of information assets
 
Reduce everyday operating costs
 
Improved business processes and user efficiency

Using Card Authentication Package

 
Simple proximity card validation (compares card information with registered users)
 
Users can authenticate at an MFP using the same card issued to access buildings (such as an employee ID badge), so users don't have to remember an additional login and password
 
Once authenticated, holders of a valid card can perform copy, scan, fax, and/or use document server functions according to their assigned permissions
 
Document release by card authentication solves the problem of documents being taken by mistake by other users printing to the same central machine (when used with Enhanced Locked Print NX)
 
Card credentials also control access to the scanning and routing features of GlobalScan NX

When authenticating using ldap, can security groups be used or do all of the users need to be in the same organizational unit?
Itchy on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

LDAP can be used at a higher Organization Unit (OU) when setting up its search base, but could become restricted by what the LDAP User has browser rights to.
