Generating TOTP Tokens and Token validation

Generating TOTP Tokens

JumpCloud multifactor authentication supports TOTP based tokens.  Any application that can generate a six digit SHA-1 based token should be able to be used with JumpCloud's MFA. Several applications that we've qualified to work with JumpCloud are:
Token Validation

Token validation is required for:
  • Mac desktop login
  • Linux SSH login
In order for these MFA enabled resources to enforce MFA login, the TOTP key must be validated in the JumpCloud user portal. In order to verify the key, users must enter two valid tokens. This rule works on a user by user basis. E.g., if MFA is enabled for a given Linux server, and User A has validated their key, they will be prompted for a token. If User B has not validated their key, they will not be prompted.

Once two valid tokens are entered, the indicator next to the MFA header will change to green. The user will now be required to enter a token on any resource endpoint where MFA has been enabled.
