Always look­ing for new fea­tures to meet your needs, we are pleased to present one of the lat­est: the two-fac­tor authen­ti­ca­tion.

This pro­ce­dure pro­vides bet­ter secu­ri­ty to a por­tal access by ver­i­fy­ing, with a sequence of two meth­ods, the iden­ti­ty of the per­son who is log­ging on. Various tech­no­log­i­cal fam­i­lies allows the strong authen­ti­ca­tion: bio­met­rics, dig­i­tal cer­tifi­cate, QR Code and One Time Password – the one we have cho­sen as it is acces­si­ble through appli­ca­tions on most sys­tems.

This tech­nol­o­gy is based on an indi­vid­ual secret code-shar­ing, using the HMAC-based One Time Password (HOTP) algo­rithm between our data­base and the appli­ca­tions used by our clients. They reply by send­ing a sin­gle-use secu­ri­ty code.

How to use it?

You first need to enable the Two-fac­tor authen­ti­ca­tion on the Profile tab to have access to your per­son­al secret code and QR code. They will allow­ing you to set your HOTP appli­ca­tion.

Once one of these codes is indi­cat­ed to your appli­ca­tion, Google Authenticator for exam­ple, it will return you a sin­gle-use secu­ri­ty code to give to your next con­nex­ions on your man­age­ment inter­face.

The spe­cial fea­ture of this code is to be renewed every 30 sec­onds accord­ing to an algo­rithm based on time or counter.

This fea­ture nat­u­ral­ly remains option­al.
