Two-factor authentication

Each user canenabled or disable TOTP-based two-factor authentication for his or her account, in this way making their login process depend not only on the knowledge of the password but on a time-based random string too.

A TOTP key is a secret specific to each user and must never be shared or logged anywhere. Each key is accompanied by a label, which is a free-text field that allows users to recall which of possibly many other keys this particular is for.

Regular users have access to their own TOTP keys only whereas super-users may access any other user’s TOTP keys.

Keys and labels may be updated via REST or Python which requires for a new key to be given on input. It is also possible to have Zato generate a new key and assign it for user - from REST or Python as well.

TOTP keys and labels are always encrypted when at rest in the database.

Note that TOTP is always enabled or disabled for main SSO credentials rather for any linked ones, which are not covered by the functionality.
