FortiAuthenticator Agent for Microsoft Windows

FortiAuthenticator Agent for Microsoft Windows is a Credential Provider plugin for Windows operating systems that allows a FortiToken One Time Passcode (OTP), validated by FortiAuthenticator, to be inserted into the Windows authentication process.

The modified login process requires Username and OTP to be validated via the FortiAuthenticator, and the Username and Password validated as normal via Active Directory (AD).

FortiAuthenticator Agent validates the OTP prior to the AD password which prevents any possibility of brute forcing the password.

This administration guide is based on FortiAuthenticator Agent for Microsoft Windows 3.8.
