U2F 2-Factor authentication

Hi,

we're using 2-factor-authentication with u2f-key like the yubikey on all of our devices at boot, on our backend-websites, facebook, google, ...

It would be very cool if royalts could also implement it. It would be also a good solution for user management, cause you only have to maintain a list of keys in the rtsz-file.


For understanding: It's not about replace password authentication with the key. It's just a seconds factor, so you need to type the password ... but if you only have the password without the key, the password is useless.


And yes, it's a well implemented, standarized, proofed solution with stable apis/librarys. It's also direct implemented in firefox/chrome.

What do you think about it? Would be very nice to have on unlocking the rtsz-file...


Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,


this is on our roadmap already. It's quite a huge effort to change our document code to make this work but we will implement this as soon as possible.

Stefan

I'm happy to report that Royal TS 5.0 has been released and includes this feature.

For more information about the major new features of Royal TS 5.0, please head over to our https://www.royalapplications.com/ts/win/features-upgrade

two things, the link above looks like windows, it is Mac

The other is, I can't really find the reference to u2f (https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aroyalapplications.com+u2f) and it is pretty simple to use but doesn't seem to work...


Hi Andrew,


thanks for pointing out the wrong link. I've corrected the link in my post.


If you have issues with the 2FA with Royal Server, I kindly ask you to open a support ticket:

Thanks,

My apologies! I misread this post and wasn't aware of U2F being a dedicated standard. We actually do not have U2F support. I was referring to the 2FA in Royal Server.


Sorry about that.
