10.2.2.2. Authentication factors

Airlock 2FA allows authenticating users in different ways:

Factor
Description
One-Touch
Pushes a message to the user's smartphone and asks the user to approve by pressing a button.
Passcode
Displays a time-based OTP to be entered in the browser by the user. Can be used as an offline fallback factor.
Offline QR code
Scan QR code with hardware token or app, compute an OTP from it. The OTP has to be entered in the browser by the user (offline factor).
Mobile-only
Mobile (business) app uses Airlock IAM REST API and either app-to-app communication or the Futurae app SDK to authenticate users.

Zero-Touch factor no longer supported

Airlock IAM does no longer support Zero-Touch authentication because up-to-date smartphone operating systems restrictions prevent its usage.

The feature has been removed from the Airlock 2FA app but is still configurable in IAM version 7.5 and older.
