How to Enable FIDO WebAuthn

You can use a WebAuthn authenticator as a two-factor authentication method for administrator accounts. Below are the compatible devices and steps to enable this feature:

Compatible Authenticators:

  • CTAP1/CTAP2-compatible hardware security keys (e.g., YubiKey).

  • Any U2F-compatible hardware security keys.

  • Android devices using screen lock authentication (e.g., fingerprint or PIN).

  • Windows Hello (e.g., fingerprint, facial recognition, or PIN) on Windows devices with a valid TPM.

  • Note: Apple Face ID and Apple Touch ID are not supported as WebAuthn authenticators.

Steps to Enable:

  1. Click on your profile in the top right corner.

  2. Select My Account.

  3. Click the green "+" button in the FIDO2 WebAuthn table.

  4. If prompted, select the authenticator you would like to use. If only one authenticator is available on the device you are using, you won't be prompted.

  5. Follow the on-screen prompts on your device to allow the Zmanda Server web interface to access and use your authenticator.

  6. Close the WebAuthn registration dialog. If the registration succeeded, the newly registered authenticator should be displayed in the WebAuthn table.

  7. Toggle WebAuthn two-factor authentication at login from "Not required" to "Required" and click the "Save changes" button.
