I’m sure that’s not a great title, but I don’t know how else to make it short. Basically, I made a small web app that is usually used in a regular web browser, but I’d like to have the ability to use it in the web browser module in Ignition 7.9.13. Normally, I have an oauth step to authenticate users, but I was wondering if somehow, from the web app itself, it could tell it was being run in the web browser module and also get a username or other info. Is that possible?
It is theoretically possible, much like IA’s ability to tell if Perspective is running in one of its mobile apps, but it will probably require some java surgery. Be aware that a competent attacker could trace your web-apps probes of its environment and figure out how to use the same bypass you are thinking of. Note that IA’s mobile apps still use browser-based authentication providers.
