I want to control the use of a user account by several people on different computers at the same time. What I need is login and check if there is a session with that user account on the server and if there is not allowed access until the other person is disconnected.
is possible with seraph do this?
I'm still not sure what the actual requirement here is. I actually think most of it is on the human side.
Do you have shared accounts where two (or more) humans log into the same account from different places? Is this actually legal in your field (it's not in finance, security, trading, military systems and so-on)?
If it is ok, then what is the actual problem with two people logging in at the same time? The audit trail is irrelevant, so where is the harm in letting them access it at the same time?
On the technical side, how do you know which session is "more important"? Time? Timeout? You can, as suggested before, simply whack the timeout value down low, that solves that problem.
Sharing accounts is not legal, but in practice it does. We do not want to continue sharing accounts because the accounts confluence we sell to businesses and hurts us the fact that a company uses an account for use by all employees. The idea is to privatize each account for personal use.
Ok, so simply give them their own accounts, delete the shared ones, and you've fixed the problem. Doesn't matter if human A then logs in three times on three machines - they're only able to work on one at a time.
hmm, same discussion as in the old question...
Felipe, I don't think that there will be a good technical solution for your problem. What your customers do is forbidden, maybe, ok. But I don't think that you can do something about it except look at the logins and, if there are too many simultanous logins for one account, grab your phone and ask for an explanation... I think, this is also no good solution...
