Invitations

Invitations were introduced in ESET Secure Authentication 2.7 to be able to deploy 2FA protection of ESA in a domain/network environment not established by Active Directory Domain Services. An invitation contains connection information of Authentication Server, certificate thumbprint and expiration, and a unique code based on which invitation is identified. Each invitation is limited by time and usage count.

If you use ESET Secure Authentication in a domain established by Active Directory Domain Services, and you want to deploy 2FA on computers outside that domain, invitations make it possible.
