Enhanced security

Protect all user credentials on C2 Identity with the Secure Remote Password (SRP) protocol and complex password requirements.

Secure credential protection

C2 Identity communicates with clients using SRP, a secure zero-knowledge password protocol. SRP generates a secure encryption key and provides authentication without ever sending password-equivalent data over the network, thereby protecting against man-in-the-middle attacks.

Password protection

Users can enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) and time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs) while system administrators can enforce a strict password policy to protect user credentials and user identities.

Enhanced security
