We’ve recently added some new features to Refernet which means that the way in which you interact with certain areas of the system has changed.
When this option is enabled by the administrator on your system, all users will be opted-in to this additional login check via a code sent to a mobile device. If a user does not enter a mobile number, then Two-factor authentication will not trigger on login. If a user has entered a mobile number then it will trigger upon login. This functionality works in the same way for Administrator access.
We’re making sure that all your users will now start to use strong passwords. This means that passwords – moving forward – will need to be a minimum of 9 characters, contain letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers and a special character (eg: exclamation point). This means that the use of bruteforce or dictionary based attacks will be severely limited.
New User – Usernames
File upload and checking
In conjunction with content-type validation, Refernet will validate the file’s signature against the expected file that should be received. This will help Refernet to fend off bogus and malicious files in a way to keep the system and the users safe.
