One-Time Passwords

A one-time password can be generated either on the request of a user (while they are logging in to a Windows Client computer) or without a request, by an Ekran System user who has been added as a trusted user (i.e. Approver) to manage one-time password requests for the Windows Client computer concerned.

NOTE: This feature is only available with an activated serial key for the Enterprise Edition of Ekran System.

Then, on the Editing Client (or Editing Client Group) page that opens, select the Authentication Options tab, and scroll down to the Two-Factor and Secondary Authentication section, where the corresponding trusted users (i.e. Approvers) selected are displayed under the Allow the use of one-time passwords checkbox, in the Users Who Can Approve Access drop-down list.

NOTE: The "Enable secondary user authentication on login" and the "Allow the use of one-time passwords" options cannot be used together. Neither of them will function correctly if both of these checkboxes are selected.
