How to Configure OAM 11g for One-Time Passwords for Use with the Oracle Mobile Authenticator Application (Doc ID 2307570.1)

Last updated on MARCH 22, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.3.0 to 11.1.2.3.0 [Release 11g]
Oracle Mobile and Social - Version 11.1.2.3.0 to 11.1.2.3.0 [Release 11gR2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to configure OAM 11g for second factor authentication (SFA) allowing end-users to enter a one-time PIN (OTP) number displayed in the Oracle Mobile Authenticator (OMA) application on a mobile device. 

The one-time PIN is time-based meaning that any specific PIN in only valid for a set amount of time. After that time period has expired then a new PIN is required to complete the SFA login step. The PIN is generated based off of a shared secret key that is known to both the OAM server and the OMA application. 

The steps listed below should work correctly for both Android and iOS devices.

Important Notes:

  • This note covers the time-based one-time PIN option only. While the configuration of push notifications with the OMA application covers some of the same pieces (such as OMA and the AdaptiveAuthentication scheme) the configuration is much more complex and not covered in this document.
  • This document covers the setup of time-based one-time PIN (TOTP) with the OAM 11g server only. Very similar steps are needed to configure TOTP with the OAM 12c server but there are enough differences that a new note is warranted. The 12c configuration note is KM note 2503643.1.
