MFA Implementation for App Connect Enterprise Web Management Console

There is no current way to implement MFA access to the Web Management Console (we rely on username/password combinations).

We are undergoing a security assessment and per IA-2(1) for privileged access and IA-2(2) for non-privileged users (see below link and attachment for official documentation) we need to implement Multifactor Authentication for Privileged or Non-Privileged accounts.

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request and for the GSA link. As part of a wider IBM initiative assessing the current state of FISMA compliance for several of our integration middleware products, we have recently been investigating several similar areas of compliance function and over time we would like to see our compliance stance improve. It is noted that for users of ACE within a CP4I architecture, OpenShift potentially exposes some third party tool options in this area which could be helpful in the interim. Nevertheless, the requirement is a good suggestion and accordingly we are moving its status to Future Consideration.
