The PingFederate administrative console supports authentication through the RADIUS protocol, which provides a common approach for implementing strong authentication in a client-server configuration.

By combining these two capabilities, you can configure PingID to provide MFA to protect access to the PingFederate administrative console, which meets the requirement of stronger authentication for administrators accessing security-related software products.


PingID requires a separate license. Please contact or request a trial license at


The following components are required to enable MFA to the administrative console using PingID:

  • PingFederate with external access to the PingID cloud service
  • A PingID license
  • A directory server where the administrative credentials and group membership are stored
