Ubuntu SSO on Touch

Hey folks, it’s time to cross another app off the list of applications to be created for Ubuntu Touch. If you’re still relying on Google Authenticator to log in to your Ubuntu SSO account, you’ll be happy to hear that you can use your Ubuntu phone for that now. Ubuntu Authenticator can be used for the two factor authentication for Ubuntu SSO and other OATH-TOTP compliant two factor auth sites. It also features easy configuration by scanning QR-Codes using the camera.

Only event based (counter) authentication tokens are supported at present. Mainly because I only use two factor authentication with Ubuntu SSO and didn’t spend the time to search for a timer based authentication. But hey, as usual the app is free and open source software; If you are interested in contributing support for the timer based auth method, let me know.

The app is submitted to the Ubuntu Store and pending review. It should be available for you to download soon.

  1. This is just great! You seem to always be scratching everyone else’s itches while scratching your own :-)
