Token-Based Two-Factor Authentication
To use token-based two-factor authentication, you first need to install an application specific to your device. Flexera’s Software Vulnerability Research uses the standard Time-Based On-Time Password Algorithm (TOTP) for token-based two-factor support, which is supported by applications like Google Authenticator or Duo by Cisco.
