Exostar’s Managed Access Gateway (MAG) uses One-Time Password (OTP) technology to secure access to your partners’ applications by adding a layer of security to your account. In addition to knowing your account password, OTP technology requires you to physically possess the device registered to your account. This makes it harder for a hacker to access your account, since the hacker needs to know your password and have access to your registered device.
When logging in to your Exostar account, you will be prompted to complete two-step verification by first entering your user ID and password then entering a unique OTP that is generated or received by your registered device. By entering the unique OTP, you prove that you currently possess the registered device. This two-step verification process mitigates security risks by providing a stronger assurance level and better identity protection than conventional username/password technologies vulnerable to theft.
Exostar offers three types of OTP credentials, all available with or without identity proofing:
