  • Sneak Preview: Secret Server Launcher for Mac

    The Thycotic Dev Team is hard at work with new functionality for Mac!  While I don’t have all the details, I do have a few items I can share.  Currently, we’re looking at an “end-of-Q4 2012” release date.  This date may slip, but it’s accurate for now.

    Details I can share:

    • The Launcher will support Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome.
    • The underlying technology uses is a NPAPI plugin. A quick install of a plugin is all it takes to enable the launcher for Mac.
    • Will support SSH and a built-in SSH client will be used.
    • Will support Microsoft Remote Desktop provided the Mac Remote Desktop application is installed.  See Figure 1 for the screenshot of Remote Desktop.  Figure 2 shows the Launcher Helper application in Firefox.

    Features due out after the initial release (available in later updates):

    • Custom Launchers will be available in a subsequent update.  Remote Desktop and SSH will be the only launchers supported initially.
    • Session Recording functionality will be available in a subsequent updates.

    The Dev Team is interested in hearing your comments, please post your questions and thoughts below!

    being able to launch an ssh shell via iterm from a mac client would definitely be a plus.
