QNAP 2-Step Verification code

Post by kend650 » Sun Jul 26, 2020 4:29 am

how do I use my yubi key nano to create a QNAP 2-Step Verification code for logging into my QNAP cloud service from ubuntu 18.04?

uh.... 2 step auth won't protect you if you expose your qnap online.

for example if your qnap is exposed, and a vulnerability exists on your nas. either because you don't update regularly enough, or it's a zero day, they could possibly compromise your system.

if you want better security for remote, use VPN as well, do not use UPNP, also update your QTS and your router firmware. yes you can still use 2stepauth, but don't count on it to protect you from vulnerabilities if your nas is overly exposed online.

there are 2 , 2stepauths i believe.

one is within QTS

the other is on myqnapcloud.

There has been discussion about yubikey support here

best ask qnap via helpdesk what status is on this

to achieve your goal of 2stepauth, probably use the google authenticator which qnap supports. You install the app on your smartphone, then that can generate the code that is linked to your QNAP.

And if for some reason 2stepauth no longer works, you can then do the soft reset.
