In this blog post we are going to continue to support the MFA user portal and extend it with the Mobile App application. The URL for the mobile apps can be found here:
Windows Store: http://www.windowsphone.com/nl-nl/store/app/multi-factor-auth/0a9691de-c0a1-44ee-ab96-6807f8322bd1
Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phonefactor.phonefactor&hl=en
First we need to install the web server sdk on the MFA server. So when I try to run the setup it tells me to enable the Basic authentication in the IIS.
Open the server manager and install Basic Authentication.
Now run the SDK installer again and it will continue
Select the website and specify a name for the virtual directory
And we are done. (at least with the SDK installer)
Now open a command prompt as admin ( PowerShell ) and browse to the installation folder of the MFA server
Then run MultiFactorAuthenticationMobileAppWebServiceSetup64.msi
Choose the site where it should be installed on. I recommend to make the virtual directory a short name as users might need to type it in their app when they want to activate their app token. (this is needed when QR scan is not possible)
Hit next and the installation will complete.
Now open IIS and right click on the MFA virtual directory and choose explore:
Open the web.config located in the folder with notepad.
Specify an user and password in the appSettings key:
Also edit the url in the pfpaws.Properties.Settings in the same file.
<setting name=”pfpaws_pfwssdk_PfWsSdk” serializeAs=”String”>
In the MFA Server console go to the mobile app and enter the Mobile App Web service URL:
Now when we go to the user portal and try to activate the mobile app we get the url we specified in the MFA server Console. Here you also see why it s user friendly to use a short virtual directory name.
Scan the QR code with your mobile or enter the url in the MFA Mobile app and you are good to go!
