Nerdio 2FA

This guide details the steps to set up Protectimus multi-factor authentication (MFA or 2FA) for Nerdio using the RADIUS protocol.

When integrating Protectimus two-factor authentication with Nerdio via RADIUS, the Protectimus Cloud 2FA Service or On-Premise 2FA Platform acts as a RADIUS server through a dedicated connector named Protectimus RADIUS Server. Conversely, Nerdio functions as a RADIUS client.

Here’s how it works: the Protectimus RADIUS Server connector forwards authentication requests from Nerdio to the Protectimus multi-factor authentication (MFA) server. Access is granted or denied based on the response received.

Below, we provide an example of how to integrate Protectimus 2FA with Nerdio.
