Omero and 2 Factor Authentication

Hi,

Just to check, is there any support for 2 factor authentication?

Hi @Cwtan,

not currently, no. The fastest path to doing so would likely be placing ab oauth-based login layer in front of OMERO.web. If you’re interested in trying something like that, let us know.

Hi Josh,

I will be interested on that, you guys have guide on that implementation?

We’ve got a prototype implementation of OAuth for OMERO.web

It’s not suitable for production use, but you should find it useful for implementing 2 factor auth. This will only work for OMERO.web, if you want to implement 2FA it on the OMERO.server side (e.g. CLI login) you’ll need to look into the Java components.
