Hi folks!

is there a way to configure a corporative wireless network using 2 factor authentication application (using Google Authenticator)?
I'd like to combine SSID authentication in the HMNG (WPA2 + Google authenticator) for authenticate the users' devices in the corporate wi-fi?

is it possible?

Best Regards,

Hello,

We can use 2 factor authentication to log in to the HiveManager (instructions below), but we do not have a way to incorporate this in to the SSID authentication for users at this time.

If you are using our HiveManager NG platform, you can enable Multi-factor authentication by clicking on the person shaped icon in the top right hand corner, going to Global Settings> Accounts> Multi-Factor Authentication. Toggle this to “On”.

Next, you’ll want to install the Google Authenticator app on the phone/device you will have with you when you login to the HiveManager. Once you’ve installed the app on your phone, you’ll be able to register the HiveManager as an account by either scanning the QR code shown on your HiveManager page, or by manually entering the account name and the Key (including the dashes) shown on the HiveManager page. Once you’ve registered your HiveManager account, you will see a code displayed on the Google Authenticator app. This code changes frequently, you should see a small circle timer in the lower right corner that will show you when the code will change. Enter the current code in to the HiveManager under Step 2 (without any spaces) and click “Confirm”.

You’ll notice you have a link to Recovery Codes. If you click on this link you will get a pop up window showing 10 entry codes. As the message at the top of this box indicates, it is very important to save these externally; as you will need to have access to them if you get locked out of the HiveManager. These are one time codes that can be used in place of a code on your phone. Only 10 are generated at a time, but you are not limited to 10. At any time you may generate new codes, just be sure to write them down and dispose of the old codes to avoid confusion.

If you want to login to the HiveManager at a time when you do not have your phone, and you do not have access to unused recovery codes, you can choose the “Reset your password here” option, which will reset your password and give you the option to disable Multi-Factor Authentication. Disable it here, then when you login to the HiveManager you can re-enable it in your Global settings and that will generate new recovery codes for you to save and use as well.

Once you are logged in with Multi-Factor Authentication, you can move between HiveManagers that your username has access to without re-entering the password or code.


Hope this helps!
