One Time Password authentication

In the clip below I run through a short demonstration on how One Time Password (OTP) authentication works.

One of our clients requested an additional level of security for their paid courses in Totara. OTP authentication mails the user a second password once they have entered their normal username and password.

The steps are as follows:

  1. A user logs in with their normal username and password.
  2. Once they have logged in, a second ‘one time password’ is generated and emailed to them.
  3. They then need to complete the login process by using this second password.

In the clip I cheated and displayed the password so that I could complete the demo a little quicker. If the username or password had been incorrect, the user would not have been given access to the site.
