When logging on to e.g. a website, the privacyIDEA backend sends a cryptographically secured challenge to the user’s smartphone.
The user simply has to confirm the login request on his smartphone. In the background, the smartphone then signs the challenges and sends it back to privacyIDEA. The signature ensures that really this very user has confirmed the login request.
The user is logged in automatically.
