Two Factor Authentication - 2FA
Revision as of 17:00, 1 April 2021 by Admin
This is done in the nuconfig.php file using these setting parameters (true) whose default values when disabled are:
$nuConfig2FAAdmin = false; //-- Use 2FA authentication for administrator $nuConfig2FAUser = false; //-- Use 2FA authentication for users $nuConfig2FAFormID = "nuauthentication"; //-- 2FA form ID. Default form ID: nuauthentication $nuConfig2FATokenValidityTime = 168; //-- 2FA Token Validity Time in hours. Default: 7 days (7 * 24 hours) $nuConfig2FAShowRememberMe = false; //-- Show a checkbox "Remember me for X days" in the authentication form (not implemented yet)
- If the 2FA authentication is active, a user is redirected to an authentication form after logging in.
- On that form, a two-factor authentication token can be requested, which will be sent by email (or SMS).
- If a valid token is entered, redirection to the actual form will occur.
- One cannot open any other form until authenticated.
- No need to authenticate again after a successful login during the "Token Validity Time" (same machine, browser)
Setting up 2FA
- Navigate to Home -> Builders -> PHP Procedure "nuAuthentication2FA_Template"
- Clone it. The procedure Code is automatically renamed to nuAuthentication2FA.
- Adapt the PHP code to your needs and save it.
- Setup the nuconfig.php variables above as appropriate like:
$nuConfig2FAAdmin = true; $nuConfig2FAUser = true;
