NComputing vSpace 2FA

Here’s a simple guide to beefing up your NComputing vSpace with Protectimus multi-factor authentication (MFA or 2FA) using the RADIUS protocol.

To set up Protectimus two-factor authentication in NComputing vSpace through RADIUS, you’ll need either Protectimus Cloud 2FA Service or the On-Premise 2FA Platform. The connection is made via a connector called Protectimus RADIUS Server. NComputing vSpace acts as the RADIUS client.

Here’s how it works: The Protectimus RADIUS Server connector passes authentication requests from NComputing vSpace to the Protectimus multi-factor authentication (MFA) server. Depending on the response, access is either granted or denied.

Below, we’ll walk you through an example of integrating Protectimus 2FA with NComputing vSpace.

  5. Assign Tokens to Users.
  6. Assign Tokens with Users to the Resource.

3. Install and Configure Protectimus RADIUS Server

Detailed instructions for installing and configuring the Protectimus RADIUS Server for NComputing vSpace two-factor authentication using RADIUS are available here.

4. Add Protectimus as RADIUS Server for NComputing vSpace

  1. Access your NComputing vSpace dashboard and navigate to the RADIUS Server Settings section.

  2. Input the details as specified below:
    Label Come up with a name for your RADIUS server.
    Hostname/Address IP of server where the Protectimus RADIUS Server component is installed.
