About OVD Enterprise 3.2

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 3.2.0 is a major release that introduces new features related to performance and security.

What's new

OVD Enterprise 3.2.0 delivers a host of new features designed to improve performance and security with improved video compression, better third-party authentication support, and more second-factor options to choose from.

For more details, please refer to the changelog at the bottom of the page.

Improved proxy compatibility for the OVD Enterprise Secure Gateway

The new Enterprise Secure Gateway is compatible with Websockets which eases integration behind a Web Application Firewall, or a Web Proxy. Performance is also improved on machines with many CPU Cores.

Support for SAML2 now available on all OVD clients

Previous versions of OVD supported SAML2 only for the Web-Access client. OVD 3.2.0 adds support for the Desktop client and the Mobile client, as well as SAML2 logins with Hybrid and Full Active-Directory integrations.

Extended Two-Factor Authentication: Duo Security

In addition to SAML2, OVD 3.2.0 now supports 2FA backed by Duo Security. Users can use SMS, PUSH, Voice call, or the Duo Mobile app as the second factor to login into OVD.

Improved video performance

OVD 3.2.0 introduces Advanced Video decoding as part of the protocol on both the Desktop client and the Mobile client to improve video quality and performance on low bandwidth networks.

New authentication logs

With OVD 3.2.0, a new log file adds a view on user logins with information like IP address, login, User-Agent, and session ID.

End of support for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

OVD 3.2.0 no longer supports Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. RHEL/CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04 are still supported.

End of support for the Admin SOAP API

OVD 3.2.0 no longer supports the SOAP protocol to administer OVD with a third-party tool. The new and more simple REST API introduced in OVD 3.1.0 is now the only way to access it.

New Installations

For new installations of Inuvika OVD 3.2.0, follow the instructions outlined in the Installation and Configuration Guide.
