ESXi Google Authenticator Fling

I love that even as large as VMware is they can still have a little fun with their product and development names.  VMware Octopus was one of my favourites.  I think we were all disappointed when they changed the name to fall into the Horizon Suite.  Flings are another great name I love.

A few days back I saw a tweet from the Fling team of a new Fling.  The name caught my eye immediately –ESXi Google Authenticator.    It sounds like a pretty cool idea.  Two factor authentication to ESXi.  I haven’t tried it out yet but I’ll be looking to over the coming days.

The source link to the Fling is below.  Designed by a couple VMware engineers in the R&D team.  There doesn’t appear to be much to the installation and configuration process.  You will need a fast connection, though, to download the 26kb zip file 🙂

It’s supported on ESXi 5.0 and 5.1.  Single admin support on ESXi 5.0 and multiple admin support on ESXi 5.1.  You have 30-second TOTP codes and support for emergency scratch codes, which I presume are for emergencies 😉
