4. Two-step Validation (with Google Authenticator)

The SonataUserBundle provides an optional layer of security by including a support for a Two-step Validation process.

When the option is enabled, the login process is done with the following workflow:

  • the user enters the login and password
  • if the user get the correct credentials, then a code validation form is displayed
  • at this point, the user must enter a time based code provided by the Google Authenticator application
  • the code is valid only once per minute

So if your login and password are compromised then the hacker must also hold your phone!

4.1. Installation

Add the following line to the composer.json file:

"sonata-project/google-authenticator": "dev-master"

Edit the configuration file:

# app/config/config.yml

        enabled: true

Now if the User::twoStepVerificationCode property is not null, then a second form will be displayed.
