Adding Multi Factor Authentication support

In addition to the recent introduction of adding API keys, now we are adding Multi-Factor Authentication support. Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user’s identity for a login or other transaction.

Multifactor authentication combines two or more independent credentials: what the user knows (password), what the user has (security token) and what the user is (biometric verification).

We will support the following methods for MFA:

  • Webauthn (FIDO2) supporting Touch or Pin and Touch sensor like Yubikey with secure elements, Software authenticators and also Biometric authentication like Finger, Face, Iris/ Voice recognition.
  • TOTP (Google authenticator)

We offer multiple methods to add an additional layer of security for your account. Read more how to add MFA to your account via our Knowledgebase: How to enable MFA on your account.

Introducing API keys

We are pleased to introduce API keys as a new authentication method for the Realtime Register API and IsProxy. By using API keys you don’t need to store any account passwords in your applications anymore. Users with the required permission can manage their own API keys in the renewed profile/account section in the Domain Manager.

To manage API keys you need the permissions MANAGE_API_KEY. If you have tweaked your permission setup you might need to assign this permission to the users that require API access.

Multiple API keys can be created per user so you can assign each application their own key.
