AuthAnvil authentication uses a combination of a PIN and a single-use password provided through a security token. The single-use password cannot be re-used and is impossible to duplicate or forge.
Before adding AuthAnvil multi-factor authentication to user accounts, create an AuthAnvil authentication profile to enable N-able N-central to communicate with the security server. The security server authenticates any single-use passwords when the user account signs in.
- Click Administration > User Management > Multi-Factor Authentication.
- Click Add.
- Enter a Name and Description.
- Enter the Authentication URL of the AuthAnvil server.
- Enter the AuthAnvil Site ID that was provided by AuthAnvil.
- Click Save.
The new profile appears in the multi-factor authentication profiles list. To verify the connection to the server, click Test in the Actions column for the server. This verifies that N-able N-central can connect to the AuthAnvil server. You can now apply an AuthAnvil authentication to a user.
