Citrix: Security Enhancements with Receiver for Mac 12.2

At Citrix, we want to deliver secure applications to users without compromising on User Experience, per se. With release of Receiver for Mac 12.2, there are some security enhancements to improve security, as well as the overall user experience.

These enhancements are based on inputs that we have received from our users. Security enhancements which have been undertaken in Receiver for Mac 12.2 are as follows:

  1. Native OS X API support for Smartcard Authentication to NetScaler
  2. User Interface for Security Configuration
  3. TLS Connection Information

Native OS X API Support for Smartcard Authentication to NetScaler

Prior to Receiver for Mac 12.2, whenever a user wanted to use smartcard authentication with NetScaler, it was necessary to install additional software called a PKCS#11 module. Also, there were cases wherein users worked in a restricted environment and were not allowed to install any additional software, including PKCS#11 modules, on their machines.

This enhancement greatly improves the usability of smartcard authentication over NetScaler by removing the necessity of installing PKCS#11 module. It does so by using built-in smartcard authentication APIs provided by OS X. So, the user doesn’t need to install any additional software to enable smartcard authentication with Netscaler (Users will still be required to install smartcard drivers so that smart card gets recognized by OS X).
