Provisioning Token2 TOTP programmable tokens - a universal guide
We have a lot of integration guides describing the process of enrolling our programmable tokens with different systems, such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook and many others.
Using programmable hardware tokens with Azure AD B2C
On August 16th, 2022, Microsoft announced TOTP-based MFA for Azure AD B2C as generally available. The name used for this authentication method is "OATH software tokens", which is another name for TOTP authentication apps like Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator.
Python version of the NFC Burner app - token2_config.py
We have been getting many requests from the customers asking to make the NFC Burner tools available under macOS and Linux.
PolKit vulnerability (CVE-2021-4034)
A memory corruption vulnerability (CVE-2021-4034) in PolKit, a component used in major Linux distributions and some Unix-like operating systems, can be easily exploited by local unprivileged users to gain full root privileges.
Using classic tokens for Native OTP Authentication with NetScaler
Citrix ADC(NetScaler) supports one-time passwords (OTPs) without having to use a third-party server. One-time password is a highly secure option for authenticating to secure servers, as the number or passcode generated is random.
Token2 is aware of the RCE vulnerability in the Apache Log4j , classified by the Apache security team as a critical severity issue (CVE-2021-44228).
Delegation of rights in Azure MFA
Azure administrators need to have Global Administrator role to work with MFA, particularly to import and activate OATH tokens. Sometimes they want to delegate this task to service desk team, but to achieve this they need to delegate GA rights too. In this article, we would like to talk about a couple of solutions that would be usefull for administrators in managing MFA.
TOTPRadius : Azure AD Proxy mode
The LDAP proxy mode of TOTPRadius was introduced as a workaround for implementing 2FA access for systems without native support for multiple authentication sources. This works perfectly fine for organizations with full on-premises or hybrid Active Directory implementations where domain controllers can be accessed over the local network directly using LDAP protocol. But we are discovering more and more organizations moving to full cloud Azure AD implementation while keeping some services, such as VPN, on-premises. As the LDAP interface of Azure AD is not accessible directly, it was not possible to configure TOTPRadius to use Azure AD as its authentication source.
The Network Policy Server (NPS) extension for Azure. Verification methods.
The Network Policy Server (NPS) extension for Azure Multi-Factor-Authentication (Azure MFA) provides a simple way to add cloud-based MFA capabilities to your authentication infrastructure using your existing NPS servers.
Securing Salesforce with Token2 Security keys or TOTP Tokens
To protect your Salesforce account and data from unauthorized access, your org can require an extra layer of security when you log in.
How to transfer TOTP profiles from Authy to a Token2 hardware token
Authy remains one of the most popular TOTP application used for 2FA due to its user-friendly features, such as centralized backup. As this feature is based on phone numbers (Authy uses your mobile phone number to identify or reset your account), which may be vulnerable to sim-swap attacks, some users may want to migrate from Authy to hardware tokens. Or, alternatively, users may need to clone/backup their existing TOTP profiles to hardware tokens.
Hardware tokens for PPTP VPN on Windows Server using TOTPRadius
TOTPRadius can be used if you need to have hardware tokens as the second factor for two-factor authentication with Windows Server based PPTP VPN. You can enroll the same tokens as with Azure MFA, so your users can use the same hardware token for both Office 365 and VPN Access. The guide below explains how you can integrate TOTPRadius with Windows Server to achieve this.
How to transfer TOTP profiles from Google Authenticator to a Token2 hardware token
Presenting Token2 Migration toolset, a tool to convert the Google Authenticator's export file to formats possible to be uploaded or burnt to Token2 hardware tokens.
Molto-2 v2, the second revision of our most popular multi-profile TOTP hardware token
A new version of our popular Molto-2 token is coming.
Token2 TOTPRadius v0.2.5 has been released
Starting from v0.2.5 TOTPRadius provides new ways of connecting to your corporate VPN systems based on L2TP, such as Meraki Client VPN or Fortinet VPN . The new web-based VPN portal allows logging in using additional methods, such as FIDO Security keys, both in Passwodless mode (if FIDO2 keys are used) and using the keys as the second factor (allowing to use legacy U2F FIDO hardware), as well as Azure AD SSO via OAuth2 protocol.
Azure AD - Protecting user accounts with FIDO2 keys without MFA requirement
FIDO2 keys as a security method is available with Microsoft Azure AD for already a couple of years now. Being the most secure access method available for Office 365 user access, enrolling FIDO2 security keys had a requirement of MFA to be configured for the users, which made it useless for use cases where users do not have (or do not want) to use multiple devices to log in. This has finally changed!
UserLock v11 released, now with Token2 Security keys native support
UserLock now supports the use of Token2 Security keys as a second factor authentication.
Programmable hardware tokens for Office 365 - is self-service possible?
With NFC tokens, the provisioning is done by the IT person equipped with software and hardware that allows burning seeds onto programmable hardware tokens (i.e. an Android device with NFC, iPhone 8 or newer for “-i” models etc.). . However, we have many customers asking if this process can be done by end-users in a fully autonomous manner.
Connecting to VPN with FIDO Security keys using TOTPRadius FIDO-VPN Interface
Multi-factor authentication for VPN systems, such as Meraki Client VPN or Fortinet VPN will be possible using FIDO Security keys, both FIDO2 and U2F.
