2-Factor Authentication for Jupyter-JSC Detailed Information Login required
2-Factor Authentication (2FA) better protects both your user credentials and the resources that you can access. Jupyter-JSC uses the time-based One-Time Password (OTP) generated by an OTP-App as a 2nd factor.
- Install an OTP-App
On one of your personal devices (eg. your smartphone) install an OTP-App:
- Initialize this OTP-App
The required secret initialization code will be provided to you in the next step of this 2FA-activation process as a QR-Code (or string). Then please scan the QR-code with your newly installed OTP-App (or type-in the string) for initialization.
New two-step login
After you installed & initialized your OTP-App it will provide you (in our case every 30 seconds) with an unique One-Time Password whenever you want to login to Jupyter-JSC.
The 2FA-Login will be almost as simple as before
- Enter your JSC-account password
Each time you log in, you will enter your JSC-account password as usual.
- Enter the current One-Time Password
You will then be asked for an One-Time Password that you read from your installed and initialized OTP-App.
