The following steps will walk you through how to setup two-factor authentication for a user.
Background on Two-Factor Authentication
Two-factor authentication is quickly becoming the standard setup for any user needing to login to a system that contains secure data. The two-factor authentication process requires a user to have two things when logging in:
- Something you have
- Something you know
Currently, all users must enter a password and a username when logging into the application. This covers the "something you know" requirement. By implementing two-factor authentication, this requires a token to be sent via text or email to a device that the user owns. This token is then entered as part of the login process - this covers the "something you have" requirement.
