ULX Two Factor Authentication?
« on: October 19, 2017, 03:10:18 AM »
Please add an option that you need to verify a code in order to use ulx commands (with permissions so the owner can set staff ranks only to do this.)
This will make the server more secure!

What would the verification code be sent by? Traditionally you'd receive a text in 2FA.

I think the 2FA he is speaking of would be more like a password or a pin.

The player sets the PIN once and then each time they connect (or try and run a command), they not only have to have the rank, but also have to enter their pin. This could prevent unauthorized access in certain circumstances.

Realistically, however, if your server is secure and you don't install a million suspicious addons, you shouldn't be having issues.

Ah, we did support password authentication in older versions of ULX, but from what I understood, no one ever used it, so we dropped it.
