Multiple 2FA Methods Per User
Kentik Detect has long supported two-factor authentication (2FA) which strengthens security by requiring not only a username and password for login, but also the additional “factor” of a token that is generated either by a TOTP (Time-based One Time Password) app on different device (e.g. Google Authenticator running on your mobile) or by a YubiKey. Instead of requiring that you choose a single such method, we now enable you to create a list of 2FA methods, any of which will be accepted at login.
You specify your 2FA methods on the Authentication tab of your User Profile (choose My Profile from the drop-down menu at the right of the main portal navbar). As shown below, you’ll see a list of currently enabled 2FA methods (if any), as well as buttons that enable you to add a YubiKey or TOTP method. For further information on adding methods, see the Register YubiKey or Register TOTP topics in the Kentik KB; for information on login procedures see Portal Login. Need help?
