2Factor Authentication

2Factor Authentication 2Factor Authentication Joint technologies

The 2Factor Authentication plug-in enables two-factor “strong authentication”: this requires users to enter, in addition to the usual password, a time-based One Time Password (TOTP). This password is generated by a two-factor authentication application that users will have previously installed on their smartphone.

With the 2Factor Authentication plug-in, built according to the TOTP (Time-based One-time Password algorithm) technology standards, it is possible to activate two-factor authentication for students, teachers and administrators: for these users, authentication verifies that they own the smartphone that they have previously configured to access the site.

Using the 2Factor Authentication plug-in, for users whose authentication is configured with two factors. So, the authentication process on forma.lms becomes the following:

  • On first access, users will have to scan a QR code with any two-factor authentication application compatible with TOTP technology (e.g. Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, etc.);
  • Users will have to complete the two-factor authentication enabling process via the QR code generated by forma.lms plugin to validate their smartphone;
  • Once the configuration is complete and activated, in addition to the usual password, users will now also have to enter the numeric code generated by the two-factor authentication application to log in.

This plug-in give a significant improvement to the security of your forma.lms installation, and guarantee a high-level security protection for your teachers, students, and users in general.

Moreover, being compatible with the most popular TOTP two-factor  software, it makes the plug-in usable with any mobile device.
