Hello all,

So we are setting up our web-hosted instance of ASpace. Thus far we have
been utilizing a secure VM that we have to tunnel into while we migrate all
of our legacy data into the system. We want to set up a two-factor
authentication system in our web-hosted version of the staff interface as
we have a lot of sensitive donor data in the system. Our the service
provider for our web-hosted version is inquiring as to the technologies
ASpace uses to support authentication... LDAP, OAuth, or PAM. From our
provider, "if it supports PAM then I’m pretty confident we have an easy
path to supporting two-factor authentication, if not we have to get into
the OAuth realm which I don’t think is straightforward yet, but we have
folks around here with more expertise."

This is foreign territory for me so I'm directly quoting our contact. We've
looked a bit at the documentation, but haven't found the information we are
looking for. Does anyone have experience with multi-factor authentication
and ASpace? If so, what mechanism did you use (technology and MFA provider)?
