OTP authorization

Post by TMroy » 20 Apr 2022, 12:13

One-time password (OTP) systems provide a mechanism for logging on to a network or service using a unique password that can only be used once. The OTP feature prevents some forms of identity theft by making sure that a captured user name/password pair cannot be used a second time. Typically the user's login name stays the same, and the one-time password changes with each login.

In order to increase the security protection of TOS, the new TOS 5 adds the OTP login authentication features. OTP login authentication is mainly used for secondary authentication of HTTP/HTTPS access to improve the security of system access, especially during remote access.

System administrators or ordinary users can respectively activate OTP authentication for their own accounts. To activate OTP authentication, you need to bind at least one mobile device, and you need to install the TerraMaster mobile application specially designed for TOS 5 -- TNAC mobile.

Users can choose to bind multiple mobile devices, and the bound mobile devices are recorded in the TOS system. When the user logs in, the system will compare and verify the OTP password generated by the mobile device with the device information. Only after the verification is passed, the login is allowed.

When users activate OTP authorization, they need to set up a secure email address, so that when the mobile device fails or is lost, the user can obtain the login verification code through the secure email address.
