TAM ESSO is used to do single sign on in desktop computers. However, while using the desktop cloud, and desktop is actually a VM in the cloud, and user is accessing it through VNC or remote desktop. Under that situation, TAM ESSO agent can't correctly recognize windows objects and fill in username/password.

    Installing SSO agent in the desktop VMs has the serious security concerns: Installing SSO agent in the desktop VM will cause security exposure because the desktop VM might be used by different users at different time.

    There are some prior arts which use image recognition to spot the username/password field location and fill in accordingly. However, the accuracy is not very high, especially when the login page has rich content and colorful background. Also, when the screen changes quickly, image recognition can't handle that well. Even worse, it can enter password at wrong field as plain text.

Install a local agent at desktop cloud, so it can accurately identify the location of username/password field with ease. Inject a human invisible QRCode to the login page, indicating the location of username/password field.

    The accuracy can be greatly improved, and the situation where the password is entered as plain text at wrong field will never happen. Inject human invisible QRCode into the picture sent to client, when the server agent detects username/password fields:
