Fischer continues to pursue bettering cyber security in 7.2 by introduction the existing user enumeration prevention mechanism in the Identity Claim feature.

Password Strength Indicator
Fischer Identity 7.2 introduces the ability to display the strength of their password to end users. This will increase the awareness and the importance of having a strong password to end-users, and improve the overall security of their accounts. The strength of the password is evaluated using Shannon’s entropy algorithm. Four classification will possibly be displayed; weak, fair, good, and strong. The password strength indicator has been introduced in the following Self-Service portal areas: My Accounts, Users, Kiosk, Self-Registration, Identity Claim, SMS Reset.
In addition to Self-Service portal, the password strength indicator was also introduced in the following areas of the Administrative UI: Add Profile page, Password View page, and Generate password page.
Oracle HCM Connector
The Oracle HCM connector has been introduced, and integrates with multiple APIs of the system; Employee, Positions, Organizations, Job Family, Jobs.
Azure AD Connector
Fischer’s Azure AD connector supports user creation, modification, and deletion. The same level of support is also introduced for Groups. In addition, the Azure AD connector allows for License management, entitlement support, and management of Managers.
In version 7.2, Fischer Identity introduces a connector for EventPro, an event planning management system. This connector supports operations which are currently available through EventPro’s REST API, such as management of Accounts, Contacts, Events, Invoices, Payments, and Companies.
Identity Claim User-type based on-boarding screen
Administrators now have the option to define a different on-boarding screen depending on the end-user’s type. This will allow for a more streamlined and customized on-boarding process, allowing you to tailor the collection of user information to the end-user type.
Ability to configure help desk profile management screen depending on selected user's type
Administrators now have the ability to configure a different profile update screen, contact verification configuration, as well as profile verification configuration for help desk users, depending on the type of the user they selected to manage. This will allow administrators to tailor and restrict help desk users from seeing specific attributes for certain user types which they can manage.
Granular audits of the Identity Claim process
Increased visibility into the onboarding process of each user is achieved by granularly auditing each step of the identity claim process. In the case of a non-completed identity claim, audits will now reflect exactly which step of the process has failed.
User enumeration prevention in Identity Claim
The user enumeration prevention mechanism which was introduce in Fischer Identity 7.1 has now been introduced in our Identity Claim feature. This will reduce brute force attacks attempts during the on-boarding process, by increasing the response delay of identification requests at each failed attempt.
Ability to increase the number of users’ passwords to remember
In this new version, Fischer Identity allows administrator to configure a higher number of passwords to remember, which allows to further limit the chances for users to reuse a previously set password.
The user export of Fischer Identity’s Kerberos connector has been improved.
Is there a place where the Connector documentation is published/available? Previously, the document sets were included in the installer package(s), but they no longer are. Can you please advise?
