Two-step authentication with Django

A quick post on django-twostepauth, a package I helped develop. This is a package that enables Django to use token devices for user authentication, like for example the free Google Authenticator available for many mobile phones.

I've been using the two-step token authentication on my gmail account and that reduced my fear of having my email account cracked. I hope other websites, yes I'm thinking of you home banking, start to allow this kind of protection.

If you do not know what two-step authentication is, the video below gives a quick tour of the authentication using the example application shipped with this django package.



The package should be easy to integrate with any website. You can download it from the usual place, or clone it from the repository. As always, feedback is very welcome.
