About this release
One Identity Starling Two-Factor Authentication is designed to support non-federated applications and applications that act as an Identity Provider (IdP), to accept a one-time password (OTP) for two-factor authentication. It provides OTP by SMS, phone call or Starling 2FA app. It also supports push notifications, where users receive approval requests on their Starling 2FA app for two-factor authentication. An application that uses Starling Two-Factor Authentication is able to validate OTP and redirect all OTP and push notification management workflows to Starling Two-Factor Authentication. Starling Two-Factor Authentication provides a single interface for two-factor authentication.
