This section guides through the process of setting up secure authentication and authorization using Auth0. Sonatype Repository Firewall supports all Auth0 compatible industry-standard protocols such as SAML, OpenID Connect, JSON Web Token, OAuth 2.0, OAuth 1.0a, WS-Federation, and OpenID. It also supports multi-factor authentication (MFA) with a supported authenticator of your choice.

On successful MFA setup, users can log in to the Sonatype Repository Firewall.


All new users will receive a "Getting Started with Firewall SaaS" from the Sonatype Team.
