Registry Use

Two-Factor Authentication [2FA]

The following instructions assume Google Authenticator will be used for Two-Factor Authorization [2FA], but there are many similar apps that are available.

  • Download Google Authenticator on your smartphone or tablet from the App Store. Additional instructions can be found here.
  • Open the authentication app and scan the QR code shown on the ROS-M web page.
  • Enter the 6 digit code shown in the app on the ROS-M page, in the Secret Token input.

You have now enabled 2FA for your ROS-M account. You will have to enter the code shown on your authentication app every time you log in to the ROS-M website. If you have any further questions, please contact support@rosmilitary.org.

How do I register a ROS component?

Currently in phase I of beta testing we have disabled population of the registry in order to refine features and maintain stable content during testing. All beta users will be notified when the registry is open for submissions.

What are the licensing terms for the ROS components registered with ROS-M?

The license for each software component is indicated in its registry entry. It is up to the developer of the ROS component to define the licensing terms, and all procurement is done directly with that developer. Many of the registered components will be Government Purpose Rights (GPR) or even open-source. For more information about licensing terms, contact the maintainer associated with the registry entry.
