Hello,

Where are the challenge questions and answers stored? Active Directory? Or somewhere else?

Also, are the questions and/or answers encrypted in any way?

Thanks for the assistance.

Adaxes does not store the actual answers to security questions. Only hash codes of the answers are stored on Adaxes backend (which is ADAM or AD LDS depending on the operating system).

is it possible to allow a user to enroll for both options, or even only one option out of the two available? I would like to give my users the choice to use either. Some users may not want an authenticator, but other's might do.
