Restricting Access from Public Networks

This article is for those who started the free trial before September 8, 2019. For details on the start date, see How to Check the Trial Start Date.

You can enable the following features to prevent unauthorized access from public networks:
  • IP address restrictions
  • Basic authentication
  • Client Certificate Authentication
IP address restrictions are effective to block access from public networks. To allow users to access from public networks, we recommend that you configure SecureAccess or Basic authentication as well as the IP address restrictions.

Basic authentication provides a double authentication by login name and password for access from public networks, and Client Certificate Authentication can restrict access by device from public networks.

More about IP address restrictions

Through IP address restrictions, you can control who has access to Kintone by specifying IP addresses. If you add the IP addresses of your office network to the allow access list, then you can block all other addresses.

More about Basic authentication

When Basic authentication is enabled, users are prompted to authenticate each time they access from public networks. By entering the ID and password for Basic authentication, users can access the Kintone login page.

For details on how to configure IP address restrictions and Basic authentication, see the following topic:

More about Client Certificate Authentication

Client Certificate Authentication is an authentication service that uses the client certificates issued by the system administrator to individual users. Only devices with a client certificate installed can access Kintone from public networks.
You can issue or specify different client certificates for each user. Even if a user loses a device with a client certificate installed, you can prevent access to Kintone from the device by disabling the client certificate.

For details on how to configure Client Certificate Authentication, see Using Client Certificate Authentication.
