Spass token behaviour


#1

Hi,

I have a question regarding spass token behavior. I am trying to recreate this behavior described in manual:

tokentype
type: string
Users will only be authorized with this very tokentype. The string can hold a space separated list of case sensitive
tokentypes. It should look like:
hotp totp spass
This is checked after the authentication request, so that a valid OTP value is wasted, so that it can not be used, even if
the user was not authorized at this request
Note: Combining this with the client IP you can use this to allow remote access to sensitive areas only with one
special token type while allowing access to less sensitive areas with other token types.

I have one Authentication policy with the following options:
Challenge response = totp
otppin = userstore

-When user has TOTP token assigned and no spass token. User is prompted for TOTP MFA code.

-When user is assigned both TOTP + spass token. spass token overrides TOTP challenge. User can login without TOTP even if spass is not assigned as challenge response in the only policy.

Is this normal behavior? I expected if spass not listed as challenge response in policy then user will not be allowed to use spass and will be prompted for TOTP?

Hi James,
if a user has two enabled tokens, he can use either the one or the other. If you want to use spass and totp, you can add a pin to totp.
The pin is a static password, like spass.

To make this clear: The spass token only consists of the PIn. This is why no challenge is triggered! Entering the PIN already is a successful authentication!
