Masa CMS Authenticator Module

v1.0.1 Modules


This is a Masa CMS Module for implementing Multi-Factor Authentication.

It was orgininaly developed as a Mura module by Steve Withington and forked by We Are Orange BV as a Masa CMS module.

Setup Instructions

  • Drop this module into a valid modules directory. For example, {MasaRoot}/modules/MasaAuthenticator
  • In the /config/settings.ini.cfm file, set mfa=true and reload Masa CMS
  • The next time a user attempts to log in, they will be prompted with instructions on what to do next.

Important Notes

  • Once enabled, Masa CMS users must install an authentication app such as Authy (recommended), Google Authenticator (iOS or Apple or Android), or Microsoft Authenticator (Windows Phone, Android, or iOS).
  • If a user loses their authentication device, and does not have access to any of their pre-generated backup codes, they will be required to contact the site administrator.

Minimum Requirements


  • Notify user of remaining backup codes (after using one)
  • Add ability to regenerate backup codes

Additional Resources

  • GoogleAuth by Warren Strange and Enrico M. Crisostomo
