Want to know how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Linux with JumpCloud’s Directory Platform?

View the video below for a step-by-step walkthrough showing how to implement TOTP MFA on your Linux systems. As you know, one of the most critical security steps you can take is to leverage a second factor when authenticating users. JumpCloud’s MFA for Linux (we also support Mac) can help you secure your Linux servers at AWS®, GCP, or within your own datacenter.

In the above video you will learn:

  1. Setting up MFA for your user
  2. Enabling MFA on your Linux or Mac system
  3. The end user’s MFA experience

We hope that you find this video tutorial helpful, but if you want further instruction, visit our MFA for Linux support page. MFA, sometimes called 2FA, is one of the top three most effective ways to secure your systems. The other two are centrally managing user identities and patching. It’s just not worth it to leave critical devices without MFA protection.
