Two-Factor Authentication?

Any info on the roadmap to offer Two-Factor authentication? Perhaps with something like duo?

I'd even like to see Touch ID offered as a starting point.

I think that this subject is getting lost amongst the other priorities.

Exactly, how would you consider the implementation of two factor authentication?

So, we know that the HomeSeer license key is already a factor in this architecture design. But, we do not know the exact details of how the license key is used.

To add, I see it concerning that there is not a challenge/response authentication mechanism between my HomeSeer system and the MyHS "Cloud" technology. I just changed my password and the MyHS cloud technology did not require me to re-authenticate my HS system with the new password. It seems like that the security of the MyHS cloud technology to my HS system is not as strong as it maybe should be considering that there could be a negative impact to my Home if the MyHS cloud technology is compromised.

What are your thoughts?

While I embrace this sort of thing, let's think about the implications.....

It is easy to say, "yes, I want this". In my opinion, this opens up another can of worms for HomeSeer Technologies as it could introduce more variables out of their control. If you want something like this then you better be throwing money out of your wallet as it will create more testing and certification headaches for HST.

Who is going to fund the development and continuous testing?

Remember, security comes at a price!!

MYHS is useful in situations where I can't use my domain and reverse proxy. For me that is plugins, and IOT features (amazon dot)

Agreed, with @Krumpy here. I would first like to see a HS3 server device authentication with myhs using some type of challenge/response authentication to synchronize an HS3 install with MYHS first.

I would then like to see failed login attempt lockout/notifications on myhs.

After that is said and done I would appreciate 2FA so long as it doesn't brick my plugins.
