    Default Two-factor authentication

    I am looking to implement two factor authentication in an Alpha Web App. The plan is to use Yubicos YubiKeys USB hardware device and Google Authenticator.
    Are there any libs or code to use these methods of Two-factor authentication? Bothe Yubico and Google have modules written in node.js. How can this be integrated into a Alpha Web application?

    Why don't you implement single sign on; alpha now supports Google single sign on so all a user has to do is use 2 factor on his Google account.

    Thanks for the suggestion but,
    The security requirement for the system is for two-factor. Also for a SaaS that requires the end user to use a Google login is not a good thing.

    Mike, here's a possible solution for you that I have used before with success.

    I'm assuming that you know how to start your node and app already, if not I can help you with that.

    In a tabbedUI create a button for External Web Page. Then, in the URL button properties, include the port number that your app is listening on (http://domain.com:12345)

    Hope that helps.
