6. Two-factor AuthenticationΒΆ

Ferda offers a possibility to use a two-factor authentication via FIDO tokens. This highly increases security of the administration system.

Before you enforce the second step of the authentication, you first need to set up the FIDO token at least for one admin. Otherwise, you could get stuck in a situation where no one can log in. Because of that, the setup of the two-factor authentication is divided into the following two steps.

First, you need to assign tokens to users (or at least one admin) in administration.

Then you can enforce the second step of authentication by setting up the FIDO_ENABLED=true in .env file when running the container.
