Multi-Factor-Authentication (MFA) is becoming more and more important. Integration of NICE DCV and EnginFrame with MFA is an interesting feature to raise the security level.

MFA for NICE DCV

MFA is typically integrated with PAM on the DCV server side in case of Linux. MFA integrations typically support

  • LDAP
  • Radius

as well as other authentication backends.

Here is the MFA authentication flow with PAM integration using an example MFA application. Other MFA applications like Microsoft Authenticator are supported as well:

User logs in
User receives a request to acknowledge the login request e.g. on the mobile phone
User approves the login by clicking on the green button
And gets approved and logged in

After acknowledging the MFA authorization request in the application e.g. on the mobile phone the login process is finished and the user logged in.

The same approach can be used to apply MFA to authenticate users when login into EnginFrame.
