ILO3 two factor authentication?

Bart had a security question:

 

*********************

 

Will we ever have two factor authentication on Ilo3 like we had on Ilo2? Ex for smartcard reader support?

I think I saw it once on a roadmap slide?

A big customer is using smart card readers for the Ilo login on their servers and now with Ilo3 they can’t use this anymore. Can we offer an alternative solution?

 

**************

 

Info from Phoebe and Lars-Eric:

 

************

 

There is some difference in how iLO 3 handles two factor versus how iLO 2 does. 

 

Feature

iLO 2

iLO 3

Two-factor direct to iLO

Supported

No

Kerberos Authentication

No

Supported

Kerberos two-factor

No

Supported

Directory

Supported

Supported

 

For most customers, the critical factor is the Active Directory setting that says "require smartcard for authentication".

iLO LDAP name/password cannot work when that checkbox is checked. iLO kerberos integrated two factor authentication can and does.
