The HiveMQ Enterprise Security Extension makes it possible to integrate existing enterprise security systems into your HiveMQ device authentication and authorization workflow. The extension makes it possible to provide a single source of truth for device authentication and authorization information across multiple HiveMQ brokers operating in a cluster and provides a single source of management for the security information.
HiveMQ Enterprise Security Extensions includes the following capabilities:
Integration with third party enterprise security systems, like:
OAuth/OpenID Connect provider via JSON Web Tokens
LDAP server and MS Active Directory
Allow for fine-grained authorization rules that can specify permissions for specific clients or groups of clients.
A structured access log for tracking security related device information.
Access control for the HiveMQ Control Center.
HiveMQ Enterprise Security Extension is available for free download and evaluation. This extension only works with HiveMQ Professional or HiveMQ Enterprise.
The evaluation version is limited to operate for only 5 hours. You will need to restart HiveMQ each time you want to reset the 5-hour limit. Please contact HiveMQ sales if you would like a longer evaluation license.
