14.2.1.2.15. SMS Token

class privacyidea.lib.tokens.smstoken.SmsTokenClass(db_token)[source]

The SMS token sends an SMS containing an OTP via some kind of gateway. The gateways can be an SMTP or HTTP gateway or the special sipgate protocol. The Gateways are defined in the SMSProvider Modules.

The SMS token is a challenge response token. I.e. the first request needs to contain the correct OTP PIN. If the OTP PIN is correct, the sending of the SMS is triggered. The second authentication must either contain the OTP PIN and the OTP value or the transaction_id and the OTP value.

Example 1st Authentication Request:

POST /validate/check HTTP/1.1
Host: example.com
Accept: application/json

user=cornelius
pass=otppin

Example 1st response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json

{
   "detail": {
     "transaction_id": "xyz"
   },
   "id": 1,
   "jsonrpc": "2.0",
   "result": {
     "status": true,
     "value": false
   },
   "version": "privacyIDEA unknown"
 }

After this, the SMS is triggered. When the SMS is received the second part of authentication looks like this:

Example 2nd Authentication Request:

POST /validate/check HTTP/1.1
Host: example.com
Accept: application/json

user=cornelius
transaction_id=xyz
pass=otppin

Example 1st response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json

{
   "detail": {
   },
   "id": 1,
   "jsonrpc": "2.0",
   "result": {
     "status": true,
     "value": true
   },
   "version": "privacyIDEA unknown"
 }
check_otp(anOtpVal, counter=None, window=None, options=None)[source]

check the otpval of a token against a given counter and the window

Parameters

passw (string) – the to be verified passw/pin

Returns

counter if found, -1 if not found

Return type

int

create_challenge(transactionid=None, options=None)[source]

subsection if key exists or user defined

:rtype : s.o.

Return the prefix, that is used as a prefix for the serial numbers. :return: oath

static get_class_type()[source]

return the generic token class identifier

is_challenge_request(passw, user=None, options=None)[source]

check, if the request would start a challenge
