Two times the security. Twice as secure. Right? Well, that only matters if the base level of security is strong to begin with. At Cloudsmith security is one of our most paramount concerns, and we utilise our collective years across different disciplines such as financial technology and Internet startups to apply this to package management. You can see this in the architectural DNA of the service, such as how we process packages away from the front-end, through to utilisation of front-end security techniques, such as the use of Content Security Policy (CSP), HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), etc.
We now have support for two-factor authentication via a TOTP (Time-based One-time Password Algorithm) device, such as Google Authenticator, LastPass Authenticator, etc. Once you've completed enrolment (i.e. registration of your device with us), you will be challenged to authenticate via the device after social or password-based login. You do this by entering in a 6-digit pin that your device presents. If you forget your 6-digit pin, we also offer a recovery service using disposable tokens.
If you're the owner of an Organisation (as defined by Cloudsmith) you can also force Enforce Enrolment of Two-Factor for everyone in the Org. A flag that denotes 2fa within the members list will tell you if the member has two-factor enabled or not. If you enforce enrolment and a User hasn't yet enrolled, they will not be able to access any of the pages for the Organisation (e.g. they can't view or manipulate packages). If you are security conscious, please consider enabling this.
