We have just released KioWare Kiosk Basic Version 6.5.0. New features include:
Protocol Access List – This feature allows you to enable or disable specified protocols. For example, many kiosk applications require only the http:// and https:// protocol. You can now enable only these, blocking all other protocols and potential entry points to applications that do not use the http:// and http:// protocols. An example of protocol that is not necessary to the kiosk application and that you may want to block would be MMS://, Windows Media Player.
Time Limited Sessions - This feature forces the session to end after a specified time.
ClickOnce Security Configuration – ClickOnce is a Microsoft technology that allows execution of .Net programs from the browser. ClickOnce can pose a security threat by allowing users to install any Office solution that is not signed with an explicitly trusted certificate. KioWare now has a feature that disables this; the recommended minimum settings are to disable "Internet" and "Untrusted Sites".
Internet Explorer 8.0 support – IE 8 has been tested and confirmed as a supported browser with KioWare products Version 6.5.0.
General SIP VOIP support - VOIP support now uses a generic SIP protocol, which allows you to use any VOIP provider that uses SIP.
New external devices support includes:
- ScanShell drivers license OCR
- Larco USB security mat keyboard wedge device
- IDTech Spectrum 3 HID
- KMY motion sensor
