  • 1.  MFA for HTTP on IBMi

    Posted Fri January 14, 2022 11:50 AM
    Has anyone implemented MFA for thier applications running on IBMi's HTTP server?   I'm trying to determine what options I have.   Some of the vendors (Helpsystems, Precisley) have MFA solutions but not specifically to work with HTTP.

    The IBM Systems Lab Services Advanced Authentication (MFA) asset allows you to call to call it as a service program.  So the question becomes are you running straight up Apache using something like basic auth against an OS user or is there an app server (WAS, Tomcat, Liberty) that would allow you to code in a call to a service program?

    You can see more about Advanced Auth (read the manual, watch a video demo) on our website at https://ibm.biz/IBMiSecurity
