9.5 Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enables you to protect your GroupWise system by adding additional authentication on top of your GroupWise login. GroupWise supports MFA through NetIQ Advanced Authentication that allows you to add different methods of authentication to your GroupWise LDAP password login.

MFA must be configured in the GroupWise Admin Console for Mobility to use it. The steps to configure MFA and a full list of the methods available to Mobility can be found in Multi-Factor Authentication in the GroupWise 18 Administration Guide.

Mobility only supports Generic Events with UI-less methods that can be appended to the users’ password with the “&” symbol. For example,(password&token). These include: Limited Use License - Emergency Password, OATH OPT, HOTP, TOTP, and Password; Full License - BankID, Smartphone, Swisscom Mobile ID, and Voice. For a full list, see Table of NetIQ Auth Methods and GroupWise Client Compatibility in the GroupWise 18 Administration Guide.
