Appendix A—Access controls
HP Digital Sending Software 4.0
HP Digital Sending Software allows MFPs to digitally send documents to a variety of destinations,
including email, fax, and network folders.
DSS allows the MFP to authenticate a user prior to allowing access to MFP functions. DSS allows
integration of authentication functions with Microsoft Windows (using NTLM or Kerberos) and Novell
Netware (using Bindery or NDS) operating systems. If authentication is enabled, users are prompted
for their username, password, and domain/tree by the MFP. The MFP then transmits these credentials
to the DSS server, and the DSS server authenticates the user to the Windows or Novell system as
If a remote network folder requires authentication for access, the user's previously provided credentials
are used. If the user has not previously provided their user credentials, they are prompted to enter
them to access the network folder.
HP Job Retention and PIN Printing
HP provides support for PIN printing on a variety of HP LaserJet platforms, including the HP LaserJet
2300, 2400, 4250, 4350, and LJ 5500 printers in conjunction with current PCL print drivers.
Capella Technologies VeriUser Authentication
Capella Technologies offers authenticated user access to MFP and digital sender functions in Windows
environments through the VeriUser Authentication Solution. VeriUser consists of VuLDAP and VuNTLM,
available as either a hardware module or software update, that can be installed on a wide range of
existing MFP devices.
The printer administrator may specify which MFP and digital sender functions require authenticated
access. As necessary, users are prompted for their user credentials, and the MFP authenticates access
with the local Windows server using LDAP or NTLM.
VuLDAP authenticates users via the LDAP protocol and supports:
• HP LaserJet 4100mfp, 9000mfp
VuNTLM authenticates users via Microsoft's NTLM protocol, which provides encryption of account
credentials, and supports:
• HP LaserJet 4100mfp, 4345mfp, 9000mfp, 9040mfp 9050mfp
• HP Color LaserJet 9500mfp, 4730mfp
• HP Digital Sender 9200c
Jetmobile SecureJet-PS Secure Print Product
SecureJet PS supports a variety of authentication mechanisms for retrieving print jobs. A basic PIN
may be used for job retrieval, using either the MFPs control panel or an add-on terminal, or a more
advanced swipe card, proximity badge, or Smartcard can be used. Authentication provided by
SecureJet may be integrated with Capella's MegaTrack software tool for job accounting.
