The MFA feature in Oracle Identity Cloud Service enables the customer to add an extra security step to the authentication process. There are four possible factors and a backup method that can be enabled.
Users are prompted during the sign-in process to correctly answer a defined number of security questions to verify their identity.
Mobile Authenticator Application:
Users generate an OTP on the OMA App on their device that must be used during log in.
Text Message (SMS):
Users receive a temporary passcode as a text message (SMS) on their device that must be used during log in.
Users receive an email message that contains a temporary passcode that must be used during log in.
Oracle Identity Cloud Service also enables users to generate a bypass code, which can be used as a backup method when users have forgotten the answers for the security questions, don’t have a mobile phone, or can’t access their email.
