Principles

With the Challenge API, Bizao allow you to authenticate the end-user using a PIN code.

The end-user will receive the PIN via SMS. This code is valid for 15mn.

Two steps are required to fulfill this authentication:

  • Step01: Generate Challenge to get a CHALLENGE_ID based on the end-user’s MSISDN. The PIN-CODE is sent at this stage.
  • Step02: Validate Challenge to generate a BIZAO_TOKEN and a BIZAO_ALIAS based on the CHALLENGE_ID you got in step01. The end-user will be then authenticated.
    • CHALLENGE_ID Sample :
