One-Time Password Enrolment
As the name implies, One-Time Passwords (OTP) are passwords which can only be used once. In addition, these passwords will update at a set time interval. To enroll to OTP you can choose to use any Authenticator app. At Syntric we recommend Google Authenticator which can be downloaded from your mobile device’s app store (i.e. Google Play or Apple App Store).
After the application has been installed, please log in to the Airwall Agent with your newly created password. You will need to initiate the 2FA process by pressing the ‘’Use 2 Factor Authentication” button again:
You will be taken to a page presenting a QR code:
On your mobile device, within your Auntenticator app or Google Authenticator, press the ‘+’ symbol (1) usually located in either the top or bottom right corner, then ‘Scan barcode’ (2).
This will open the camera with a square overlay. Position the square over the code displayed onscreen and the application should automatically return to the previous screen with a set of numbers. Enter this code in the prompt in your web-browser:
The final step in the process is to link your device to your account. After pressing ‘continue’ in the previous step, you should be redirected to the following prompt:
Once complete, the following will be displayed:
The Airwall Agent will now be active and build connectivity into the environment.
Once authenticated, the session will remain active for a predetermined amount of time. This is configured per the client policy. If you wish to understand what this value has been set for the tenant you are connecting to, please contact Syntric.
When a new session is started, or an existing one has expired, the Airwall client will prompt the user to re-authenticate. The Control panel will also state the requirement for user authentication:
Simply press the “Use ‘2 Factor Authentication’ (in a new web-browser)” to continue. As indicated by the button, a web-browser will open and redirect you to the login page, where the user will be asked to enter their email, password and then one-time code from their Authenticator app or Google Authenticator:
The ‘one-time code’ can be obtained from the authenticator app configured within the enrollment process:
Security warning: never share this code with anyone including Syntric staff
After entering the code, the user is redirected back to the Airwall network to confirm the connection:
The Airwall client will now be active and automatically build connectivity back into the environment
