Multi-factor authentication: Privacyidea released in version 3.4

As part of the new version 3.4 netknights expands its privacyidea, a free software for multi-factor authentication in companies.

With a new function, a user can be requested from a user after a first successful identity proof of a second or on request several further inputs of a factor. This can be used for example if the guidelines require a new pin after a certain time. This can be set in this way directly when the login process.

Version 3.4 includes a new sms provider script, with which companies can send messages. Primar is this intended for sms services that work on ubers web, but other programs can be used as the in-house jabber server. Furthermore, the project has expanded the http sms provider, with which the header is now adapting to its own wunch.

In addition, it is now possible for privacyidea to check out certain token classes in the login process. Standard mabig, the software compensates for all token offered by the client. The administrator also preserves a new dashboard. It should at a glance provide all the important information of the mfa software, including the available hardware tokens, references to the guidelines as well as information about the licenses used.

Finally, companies can now also use their own token classes of third-party providers without having to change the code of the software. There are also many smaller changes and bugfixes that can understand readers in the changelog on github. Privacyidea appears as free software under the open source license gnu agpl v3. Developer netknights also offers an enterprise edition with commercial support.
