As of yesterday, PJM started optional 2-factor authentication for browser-less users of Markets Gateway, InSchedule, Power Meter, FTR Center, Capacity Exchange and DR Hub. Market participants must ensure that they have completed the following:
– Obtained valid PKI certificates from approved Certificate Authorities
– Worked with the necessary parties to rewrite Browserless/API authentication code
– Use PJM provided command line interface (CLI)
– Make sure 2-Way SSL Connections, Client Certificates & Connection Renegotiation are enabled at Firewall & Security devices for outgoing PJM SSO traffic
This change is currently by opt-in only but will become mandatory in 2022.
