Security authorization

Set out access rules for TrueConf Room in the Security section of the settings sidebar.

Note:

The following describes only security implementation principles, but you can read our blog post to learn more about setup instructions.

Security levels

There are various security levels:

  • To limit user access to the network settings, you can set out login rules for administrators

  • To limit any access to the endpoint, including video calls, you can set out login rules for users.

Security types

TrueConf Room supports the following types of secure authorization:

  • Password is a sequence of characters that the administrator sets for security reasons. The password should be entered manually each time you access the TrueConf Room control panel. It is a recommended login method for administrator mode.

  • PIN code is a case-insensitive short sequence of characters generated automatically. Not only it can be entered manually, but also used to access the control panel via a link. It is a recommended login method for user mode.

Tip

Please note that secure login for users is available only if it has been configured for administrators.

The link containing a PIN code looks like [server]/[PIN], where [server] is the address of the local web server launched by TrueConf Room (you can see it in the browser address bar after logging in).

Example

If TrueConf Room works on the port 80 on a machine with this IP address 10.1.1.10, you will need to use this link http://10.1.1.10/ABC to access the control panel with a PIN code.

Note:

If you set a PIN code for users, it will be embedded in the link on the start screen. In this case, you can restrict access for people outside the meeting room, but this will not require additional measures to be taken by people in the meeting room when they log in.

Start screen view

If you have TrueConf Room Pro, you can adapt the start screen view to your preferences and brand.

In the Main screen section of the settings menu, you can select the elements of the start screen.

You can enable/disable the display of:

  • Date and time

  • Logo

  • Connection details

Tip

Connection details checkbox enables the display of a QR code and a link to the control panel. If you disable this checkbox, you will have to provide this link to users in the meeting room on your own.

  • Information about the current user

  • Notifications about incoming calls and conference invitations.

Tip

If you mark the checkbox Incoming call, invitations and requests to join the conference, a notification with information about the caller will be displayed. You will also be able to accept or reject calls, invitations, or requests.
