WWPass for WordPress

WWPass authentication plugin for WordPress.

  1. From WordPress Dashboard, install and activate the WWPass plugin for WordPress.

  2. Register your web site in WWPass and receive your Service Provider ID (SPID), see https://developers.wwpass.com/documentation/get-started

    Once you have completed the process you will have three types of files:

    • WWPass SPID credentials key (.key)
    • Digital certificate (.crt)
    • Certificate authority (wwpass.ca)
  3. Create a new directory on your server to place your SPID credentials.

    It is recommended to create this directory at a level above your web server’s Document Root (see http://developers.wwpass.com/help#faq )

  4. Upload your .key, .crt, and .ca files to the newly created directory.

    If the configuration of your server does not allow storing files at a folder level above your Document Root, access to the uploaded files should be restricted. For example, if your web-server is running Apache you can create an .htaccess file with the following contents in the directory with the key and certificate files:

    deny from all

    In any other cases contact technical support of your web hosting provider or a system administrator which supports your server.

  5. Login to WordPress using an account with administrative privileges and configure your WWPass plugin by going to Dashboard | Settings | WWPass.

  6. For each of the credential files you uploaded, enter the absolute path (see http://developers.wwpass.com/help#faq ) in the corresponding fields and click "Check and save settings".

  7. To bind your PassKey to your WordPress user account you should login to your WordPress site using existing username and password. From the Dashboard select WWPass and click on ‘Attach’ (you will need to present your PassKey) or scan the QR code displayed on the page using your WWPass PassKey Lite.

  8. The next time you log on to your site, just click on ‘Log In with WWPass PassKey’ to login with WWPass hardware PassKey or scan the QR code displayed on the login page with your WWPass PassKey Lite.
