Authenticate with Defender

Authenticate with Defender

You can use this activity to configure Password Manager to use Defender to authenticate users.

Defender is a two-factor authentication solution that authenticates users without forcing them to remember another new password. Defender uses one-time passwords (OTP) generated by special hardware or software tokens. Even if an attacker captures the password, there will be no security violation, since the password is valid only for one-time-use and can never be re-used.

You can use the Defender authentication to authenticate users before resetting their passwords or unlocking their Q&A profiles.

Before configuring the settings in this activity, install and configure Defender as described in the Defender documentation.

IMPORTANT: To make Password Manager use the Defender authentication, you must install the Defender Client SDK on the server on which Password Manager Service is installed.

This activity has the following settings:

  • Defender Server (IP address or DNS name). Specify Defender Server IP address or DNS name.
  • Port number. Type the port number that the Defender Access Node uses to establish a connection with the Defender Server.
  • Server timeout. Specify Defender Server time-out (in minutes).
  • Defender shared secret. Provide the secret that the Defender Access Node will share when it attempts to establish a connection with the Defender Server.
