The WiKID Blog

The WiKID Blog, musings on two-factor authentication, information security and some other stuff.

Can I re-enable users after a certain amount of time?

Yes, you can.  On the WiKIDAdmin interface, go to Configuration > Set Parameters > Create a New Parameter.  Call it "reEnableHours" and set the number of hours you would like.  Disabled users will automatically be re-enabled after that time.  Be careful though, you do not want to automatically re-enable two-factor authentication for a user that has been disabled for a valid reason.

Heartbleed, Two-factor authentication and cascading failure

For the record, we use java for certificates, not openssl, so the WiKIDAdmin server interface (which should not be Internet-facing anyway) is not vulnerable to Heartbleed.

How can I configure WiKID to start automatically.

Yes.
