Time Based Tokens
Time Based Tokens work with any OATH software such as Google Authentication for Android, or Apple’s OATH Token App for example.
Once activated, you will be required to provide a second form of Authentication that only they have access to. This Authentication comes
in the form of a 6 digit passcode that expires every 30 seconds.
How does it work?
Upon initial signing once Token Based Two Factor Authentication is actived, you will be presented with a QR code to scan using your smartphone or tablet device.
Once this is scanned, your device will then store authorization to generate a pass code and authentication to our Systems.
Every 30 seconds, a new 6 digit code will be generated through your OATH application of choice (Google Authentication or Apple’s OATH Token App for example) which will be used as their second form of Authentication during login to our Systems.
Why do I need this?
Many individuals tend to use the same password for all of their login points. In the event that a malicious users gains access to one
login of you, they could potentially gain access to all other login-required sites.
Two-Factor Authentication puts a stop to that by requiring users who succesfully login in with a user & password combintation to use
a physical device they posses for futher verification.
We also support Yubikey Auth.
A YubiKey is a One-Time Password (OTP) generator device. It generates a unique sequence of characters as an OTP every time its button is pressed. As the term suggests, a One-Time Password is valid only for a single use and cannot be used again for authentication. YubiKeys are typically used in implementing strong two-factor authentication solutions which provide much stronger security when compared to using only a username and password. The YubiKey supports multiple types of configurations and may be used to generate One-Time Passwords as well as static passwords.
