Introduction

The Two Factor Authentication with SSH module provides you with the instructions and devices to develop your hands-on skills in the following topics.

  • Connecting to Win10 and Kali
  • Configure Google Authenticator

Lab time: It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab

Exam Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • CAS-002 1.1: Distinguish which cryptographic tools and techniques are appropriate for a given situation
  • CAS-002 1.3: Given a scenario, analyze network and security components, concepts and architectures
  • CAS-002 4.2: Given a scenario, select the appropriate control to secure communications and collaboration solutions

Exercise 1 - Connecting to Kali

Exercise 2 - Configure Google Authenticator

Google Authenticator is a very productive application that provides and allows for two-factor authentication (2FA) on a device that we wish to improve the level of security against. It uses the Time-Based One-Time Password algorithm (TOTP) and HMAC-based One-Time Password Algorithm (HOTP).

The password generated can then be used as an additional requirement to enter through a SSH connection or in fact any type of configuration required.
