How do I secure my windows login with google authenticator?
I want to secure my windows login with google authenticator. Preferably by using an open source solution, I want a login mechanism where I just don't enter a username and password, I also have to enter a code to enter. It should be compatible with Windows 7 and later.
Please refer to a place where installation instructions are also present.
P.S. I'm not a fan of hardware tokens so please don't refer that.

Windows Packet Direct
Are there any code examples, and list of NICs you can use, for implementing PacketDirect Client Interface (PDCI) on Windows?
Packet Direct is introduced here;
The intent is to use this to increase the amount of packets per second an implementation of SCTP can process by using, what purports to be, a much faster method of processing packets at Layer 2.
Whilst I can find the MSDN documentation of the relevant functions, I cannot find information showing how to put it all together. IE following in the footsteps of a basic working implementation.
I'm OK with handling compiling and decoding IP/ARP/SCTP into and out of raw Ethernet frames, but I do not know how to implement Packet direct to obtain an interface for performant tx/rx of small packets;
I have tested with a version of the NDIS driver examples to send raw Ethernet, unfortunately its packets per second performance was not much better than user mode raw sockets, topping out at circa 140k pps (32 byte payload,per core, test no actual work per packet) on a reasonably modern machine with back to back 1Gbps link.
Is packet direct a "new dawn" for Windows packet processing speed,could you get into the million(s) of pps, and is there sufficient information about to be able to use it?
activate screen lock when screen is turned off
I have a requirement that needs Screen Lock to be activated when a screen (one or more) is physically turned off.
We already have the 10 minute inactivity rule etc. but this is a security requirement for certain PCs. We do not want users to leave a PC having not signed out but having turned the screen off and walking away, therefore allowing someone else to walk up and gain access to a PC that is not quite locked.
Is there a setting in registry to ensure this can happen?
Windows 10 Credential Provider with C#
I am working on implementing a Credential Provider in C#.
I have downloaded the V2 Credential Provider sample in C++, which is for Windows 8, and managed to make it work on my Windows 10 PC. I also looked into this credential provider implementation in .NET https://github.com/SteveSyfuhs/CredProvider.NET, but this is for the CredUI scenario.
I have managed to make my credential provider to be displayed under "Sign-in options" of a user's tile, but now I would like to implement the login part.
I have to implement the GetSerialization method for the Logon/Unlock scenario. In the C++ sample this is already implemented, but I have troubles "translating" it into C# code, since I am not familiar with C++.
Does anyone know where I could find a working implementation of this method in C# for the Logon/Unlock scenario? Any help would be very appreciated.
How to programmatically interact with winlogon?
I have a Windows Service that I want to use to programmatically unlock the workstation, using the account username and password.
This article https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn751047(v=ws.11).aspx explains the logon authentication workflow on Windows in the following image:
As seen above, on step 5, the user inputs the credentials into the Logon UI. What I want to achieve is to have the Windows Service input the credentials and have winlogon perform the login.
There is no winlogon API to achieve this. As seen in other questions, using winapi's
LogonUserfunction successfully performs the authentication and returns a token, but it does not switch to the application desktop and the Logon UI remains on screen.
Most articles and SO answers hint towards credentials providers, but all credentials providers samples require user interaction with the Logon UI.
