We are looking into using iAnywhere mobile office for the
iPhone.

I was told that all pre-sales related questions should be
posted here.

Does iAnywhere Mobile Office for the iPhone support user
certificate authentication to the optional DMZ based proxy
server?

So the way it would work would be, a user with an iPhone
could only connect to the "proxy" in the DMZ if they had a
valid client certificate, then after that was verified they
would send their login/password to actually sync. (Two
factor)

This is how we use ActiveSync today.

I could not find anything about this in the documentation
available online. I found that there is 2 levels of
authentication supported but no mention about
certificates.

The data that the iAnywhere client sends, is it HTTP/HTTPS
based?

What proxy is used in the DMZ? I read that it can be based
on Redhat. Is it actually Apache configured as a Reverse
Proxy server?

Thanks for any information.

The current iAnywhere Mobile Office iPhone client doesn't support the
ability to input two factor authentication from the iPhone. Currently once
the initial provisioning and activation of a user's iPhone is complete the
user isn't asked for a separate network or certificate based authentication.
Access to the encrypted store on the device is controlled by the user's
Application Password. Mobile Office doesn't rely on the individual users
network or groupware password for data access.

The iAnywhere Mobile Office Transport traffic is fully encrypted over any
network using a combination of RSA 1024Bit asymmetric and AES 128 Bit
symmetric encryption.

We provide two options for DMZ Proxy Servers. Our own Mobile Office
Application specific DMZ Proxy Server that runs on a Windows Server and our
Sybase Relay Server that consists of a Apache or ISS plug-ins to provide a
secure DMZ environment.
