Re: Salsa update: no more "-guest" and more


Google Authenticator is a software-based authenticator by Google that implements two-step verification services using the Time-based One-time Password Algorithm (TOTP; specified in RFC 6238) and HMAC-based One-time Password algorithm (HOTP; specified in RFC 4226), for authenticating users of software applications.

There are even cli tools that do the same stuff. I'd guess there is at least one on Debian.

No need for a mobile phone.

Enforce that (if Salsa is doing that in the meantime, ignore me).
i hope you don't suggest to enforce 2FA system-wide for all users of salsa.
i read you original mail as a requirement to enforce 2FA for users who
want to use salsa as an authentication provider for their own
applications (which is fine with me)
Actually I think 2FA should be enforced for everybody.
Even debian.org related passwords might get lost.

I never used 2FA before, so I want to your link and then, to learn more about
it to this one:


There I read that I have to install some application on my iOS, Android or
SailFish OS device. I do not own any device with either of those operating
system and neither does anybody else in my household. I guess I would need to
use Qemu to run an emulated Android on my laptop instead. But if I do that --
how would that improve security at all?


cheers, josch
