Ministry of Defence is focused on increased protections against evolving cyber threats. To address security risks, Ministry of Defence and Exostar have partnered to implement a 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) login process in the near future.
2-Factor Authentication (2FA) mitigates the risk of cyber-attacks by validating the identities of users accessing the SCP-MOD application with a second authentication method. SCP-MOD users will be required to activate a Phone-Based 'One-Time Password (OTP)' authentication credential on a landline or mobile phone. The OTP credential will be used in combination with the User ID and Password each time the user logs in to access the SCP-MOD application.
The OTP purchase and activation process is managed through Exostar's Identity Access Management Platform (aka MAG). SCP-MOD users will need to purchase and activate a Level 2 Phone-Based OTP credential (which does not require identity proofing to activate).
Please refer to the support guides below for instructions on how to obtain your Phone-Based OTP Credential. (Note: Exostar users who have already purchase equivalent security credentials do not need to complete the phone-based OTP process.)
Ministry of Defence greatly appreciates the cooperation of our valued supplier partners in making security a priority.
