Require basic Two-Factor Authentication support in the core Websphere Liberty/OIDC capability

The CLM products currently integrate with OIDC capability built on Liberty to provide SSO capabilities. We would like the OIDC capability to be enhanced to provide two factor authentication support. The two factor support can be as simple as sending a verification code to the user email or cell phone (this information can be retrieved from the user registry) which the user has to enter before the tokens are issued by the OP

    Thank you for the suggestion. The requirement does have merit, but looking at it with respect to our total backlog of requests we do not see sufficient interest in this enhancement to merit delivery any time in the foreseeable future. Given the unlikelihood that we would deliver this, we are declining the request rather than leaving it in an uncommitted state for an extended period of time. We recommend integrating with a third-party OIDC provider that supports 2-factor authentication. If you would like to discuss this decision further, please contact Graham Charters <charters@uk.ibm.com>.

    Same request from our business. We need OIDC provider to use second factor for user authentification. Sms token in our case. We already have services able to send sms to users cellphone (ws, ejb, rest), we just need OIDC provider to use them.
