  1. Congratulations to Brad, and best wishes for an enjoyable retirement and many thanks for his years of service to Dominique P. Goupil. Steven H. Blackwell Platinum Member Emeritus, FileMaker Business Alliance
  2. 😀 Mental telepathy. There is, of course, a lot more than just the items covered in the White Paper. But those are the core building blocks. Steven H. Blackwell
  3. View File FileMaker Workplace Innovation Platform Security Building Blocks The FileMaker Workplace Innovation Platform has evolved over the past fifteen years since the release in 2004 of FileMaker® Pro 7 to encompass now a robust suite of security features to protect the Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, and Resilience of organizational data.

  5. Here is a good starting place for Server version 17. https://community.filemaker.com/docs/DOC-8939 Then maybe look here: https://www.productivecomputinguniversity.com/courses/fm-server-manager And here is one more: https://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog Steven H. Blackwell
  6. A Forward Look About FileMaker Platform Security Developers and users of the FileMaker Workplace Innovation Platform must be concerned about security of their deployed solutions. Likewise, they must have a forward-looking perspective about key issues in this arena. Security has its major purpose the preservation of Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, and Resilience (CIAR) of their systems. Liabilities resulting from breaches can substantially affect continued business operations, continued business existence, imposition of civil or criminal sanctions, brand reputation, and customer or client confidence. I see at least ten security concerns that the FileMaker Developer Community must consider going forward for the next few years and development cycles: The Business of Security: What Is Security Supposed To Do? Zero Trust implementation for the FileMaker Platform [https://fmforums.com/blogs/entry/2047-federated-identity-management-zero-trust-and-the-filemaker-platform/] Federated Identity Management and the end of FileMaker Accounts in files Native Multi-Factor Authentication (not SMS) Further implementation of Secure by Default and Rule of Least Privileges for the FileMaker Platform Expansion of Roles-Based Construct in the FileMaker Platform SaaS Security Implementation for the FileMaker Platform Building a Culture of Security in the FileMaker Developer Community Building a Culture of Security among the FileMaker Customer Base The Coming Regulatory and Political Onslaught Against the Tech Sector So as we go through the just-started FileMaker, Inc. Fiscal Year running up to the next version release and the 2019 DevCon, we should keep these elements in mind. Steven H. Blackwell, Platinum Member Emeritus, FileMaker Business Alliance
  7. Hello, Peter. Are you calling the machine by its IP address or by its Fully Qualified Domain Name? The latter is required to get a ConnectionStatus of 3 aka the "green lock" symbol. Steven H. Blackwell
  8. The face of computing and data access has changed enormously over the past decade. In an always-on, connect-from-anywhere, mobile-device-driven world, the network perimeter has disappeared. With that disappearance has come a variety of new security and business process challenges to the Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, and Resilience of organization digital assets. Coupled with growing regulatory strictures, business reputation management requirements, and customer or client trust, modern day information management challenges have multiplied. Verification of authenticity of users who seek to access these assets is now the major information security challenge. Federated Identity Management is one of the most important concepts in modern Information Security Services. What is it, and how do developers and administrators implement it? What problems does it solve? How does it relate to the FileMaker Platform? A new White Paper discusses this and the related concept of Zero Trust Security, something very important to the future of the FileMaker Platform in my view. You can download the White Paper here: https://fmforums.com/files/file/105-federated-identity-management-zero-trust-and-the-filemaker-platform/ Steven H.

  11. The new version of the FileMaker Platform contains a new feature called Account Lockout. This feature’s purpose is to help thwart brute force attacks against hosted files. Such attacks try a large number of passwords against an Account in an attempt to gain access to the file. Here are a few key points about this new feature: v It works for files hosted on FileMaker® Server 17 only. It does not work for files hosted on earlier versions of FileMaker Server or for stand-alone files. v It works against internal FileMaker Accounts only. Externally authenticated Accounts, including those using oAuth, have their own rules regarding failed attempts. v Any version of FileMaker Pro that can access the files on the Server can trigger this feature. It does not have to be a FileMaker® Pro 17 Advanced client. For a detailed description of this new feature, complete with illustrations, you can download the attached PDF. Steven H.
