10.2.2.6.2. Basic configuration settings

This page describes how to configure the Airlock 2FA Settings plugin. It configures the central aspects of Airlock 2FA across various parts of Airlock IAM (e.g. authentication, self-services, administration, transaction approval).

  • It specifies the following settings:
  • Connection to Futurae cloud
  • Connection to Airlock IAM database
  • How to encrypt data in the Airlock IAM database
  • Authentication factors that may be used

Prerequisites

  • An Airlock 2FA subscription is required.
  • An Airlock 2FA Service ID, an Auth API Key, and an Admin API Key is required. It will be obtained together with the subscription.
  • The database schema of Airlock IAM needs to be up to date with IAM 7.6.

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.
