Abstract: Embodiments facilitate the management of security certificates for third-party services being used to print documents from kiosks in public locales. The system establishes a gateway connection between a cloud-based host server, the third-party service, and the kiosk. When a user wishes to use the third-party service to print a document requested through the kiosk, the host server obtains the security certificate and installs the certificate in the kiosk. The kiosk may then request the document from the third-party service which forwards the document upon authentication of the security certificate details registered in the kiosk.
Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a memory and an arithmetic device. The arithmetic device acts as a registerer, a storage device, and a deleter. The registerer registers a user. The storage device stores function information related to a function to be utilized by the registered user, in the memory in association with the user. The deleter deletes, when one of a plurality of events, defined as triggers for reducing a number of the users registered by the registerer, has occurred, the registration of one or more users and the associated function information, according to a rule corresponding to the event that has occurred. The deleter keeps from deleting, when the event that has occurred, out of the plurality of events, makes the user whose registration has been deleted highly likely to be reregistered, the function information associated with the user whose registration is deleted.
