Our mission

At NetKnights we believe that proprietary solutions for multi-factor authentication are inflexible and make companies dependent.
That is why we are developing the open source solution privacyIDEA for secure user authentication that we freely share with the world.
We support our customers in using this solution. This way they are independent and always have full control over their login processes and data.

Become a NetKnight – become a multi factor expert in Open Source

We are looking for you as a consultant to run projects with new customers.

Your main task is to record the requirements for multi-factor authentication at customers and to implement privacyIDEA.

You will conduct customer sessions on your own and independently.
You coordinate your appointments independently and attend the consulting meeting once a week.

How do you get there? – The onboarding

During the first weeks or months you will accompany colleagues at support, at the development and also at sales. This way you will be able to understand, what we are developing and which benefits we provide to the customers.

Your goals

Start by takting single, small steps. Depening on your learning capability

  • You will be able to work on simple standard setups like securing remote access via VPN/Firewalls and the RADIUS protocol.
  • Later you will dive into scenarios with Windows Login using the privacyIDEA Credential Provider.
  • Finally you will be able to work on rather complex scenarios adding 2nd factors to Web Single Sign on with IdPs like Keycloak and automated processes using more complex privacyIDEA policies, event handlers and scripts.

As a consultant you are the first face to the customer. You will also attend conferences and customer events.

Although we try to do an excessive onboarding you should bring some technical skills, social attributes and personal values.
