Support for Two Factor Authentication in Confluence (Download Version)

We would like to use two factor authentication to increase login security on our confluence site. It is publicly exposed (and must be, don't hassle me about this) and I'd like to lock this down as best as possible. Is there a known or approved vendor/approach to getting this implemented? Please advise.

The best way so far that I know is to implement an Apache frontend (reverse proxy) and do this on the Apache side. There are currently modules for Apache that is able to do this. It will be a separate login and not integrated exactly with Confluence.

I do not know of direct support for this within Confluence itself.
