KBA Authentication Node

A simple authentication node for ForgeRock's Identity Platform 5.5 and above. This node prompts with a random question from the user's set of KBAs.


Copy the .jar file from the ../target directory into the ../web-container/webapps/openam/WEB-INF/lib directory where AM is deployed. Restart the web container to pick up the new node. The node will then appear in the authentication trees components palette.


The node uses KBAs defined in a user's profile by the user self-service module. Enable the self-service module and allow a user to register one or questions during registration or in their profile page. This node will then pick a random question from the profile and prompt for the answer. The node outcome is either true or false depending on the users response.
