LSE LinOTP - a vendor-independent product for two-factor authentication and
one-time password methods (OTP) - will be made available by LSE, Leading
Security Experts GmbH, as an open source solution with all current features

At the annual AusCERT Information Security Conference in Australia, and in
conjunction with a Red Hat tutorial about the internal deployment of LSE
LinOTP Enterprise Edition, LSE Leading Security Experts GmbH (LSE)
[http://www.lsexperts.de], a member of the MAX21 Group (MAX21 Management 
und Beteiligungen AG) [MA1, http://www.max21.de], will announce the
expansion of its open source strategy.

The currently-separate community edition [http://www.linotp.org] and
commercially-marketed enterprise edition [http://www.lsexperts.de] will be
merged. LSE will provide LinOTP free of charge as an open source software
solution licensed under the AGPLv3 and GPLv2. The complete feature set will
be available for download when LinOTP 2.7 is released  in the second half
of May 2014.

Quoting Sven Walther, CEO and CTO of LSE Leading Security Experts GmbH,
"With this step we open the source of a professionally-maintained and
scalable product for enterprise-grade sign-in security. Through such
licensing and marketing, we expect LinOTP to advance the distribution to
the most frequently installed sign-in security solution for two-factor
authentication and OTP methods worldwide. We see a global demand for
LinOTP. The solution is highly flexible and scalable. LinOTP appeals to a
wide range of users and is suited for nearly every enterprise - be it TAN
generation for online banking, high-availability deployment in enterprise
environments with many dependent users, or secure one-time password sign-in
at smaller companies, to name just a few popular use cases."

LSE Leading Security Experts GmbH will complement the LinOTP software
solution with matching LinOTP support and subscription services as well as
professional service offerings. These will include extended levels of
quality assurance for updates and patches, the availability of LSE LinOTP
Smart Virtual Appliance as a fully-integrated turn-key solution,
prioritized hotfixes by our development team, and advisory services on top
of the usual standard support and consulting services.

With this recent open source offering, customers now have the option to
pick the solution that best suits their usage scenario. This encompasses
both deployments that are fully-featured yet completely free-of-charge, as
well as business-critical deployments with all their requirements on
support and quality-assurance processes, including a firm commitment by LSE
to the continuous development of its solution. To enable this, LSE will
further expand its technical and human resources in this area.
