Soft Token

For managing creating, deleting soft tokens click on the Manage Soft Token Tile. A soft token is a mobile app, such as Google Authenticator that will provide a code adhering to the TOTP standard. End users may then enter that code as part of a two-step verification process. APIs are provide to generate the secret key as well as the QR code and to validate a user-entered code.

The process is outlined in the diagram, below:
