Setting up two factor authentication for Adobe Experience Manager

You can create an OSGi bundle for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) that is responsible for supporting two factor authentication. That is, you can configure AEM to use a one-time password (OTP). An OTP is an automatically generated numeric or alphanumeric string of characters that authenticates the user for a single transaction or session.

The benefit of using an OTP is it's more secure than a static password. An OTP token is typically generated by a mobile application that displays a number. The number changes every 30 or 60 seconds, depending on how the token is configured.

When the user logs into AEM, they enter their user name, password, and OTP value.

  1. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a feature that will keep your account even safer in the event someone manages to get access to your master password. With 2FA, a hacker will not be able to access your data unless they also have a hold of the device you set up Two-Factor Authentication with.
