LinOTP to generate the tokens

Does your add on allow an external source such as LinOTP to generate the token for me to in return use an application Google Authenticator or generate the PIN?  Or do you generate the token?

Dear Chris,

the plugin is RFC 6238 compliant, so you can use almost every authenticator on the market, which supports TOTP. In Our tests during development we used a whole bunch of different authenticators on different platforms in order to get sure it is working. Among others we tested with Authy, Google Authenticator and FreeOTP.

In addition the plugin provides an expert configuration. With this you are able to adjust the parameters for the TOTP algorithm, in case you use non-standard authenticators or settings.

As the plugin is self-contained on the server-side and integrates seamless into the JIRA security system, there is no need for an external server solution like LinOTP. As I didn't know LinOTP before and if you see some useful scenarios for it, please feel free to talk to me about it.
