21 I suggest the system-auth category.
23 Why? It is always good to look where similar applications belong.
24 Authenticator is basicall 2FA/OATH GUI, and oath-toolkit is in
25 system-auth, most yubikey stuff is there as well.
27 And now look in sys-auth/metadata.xml:
29 The sys-auth category contains applications and libraries to support
30 authentication and authorization facilities.
31 Here belongs PAM modules, NSS modules and login apps.
33 Authenticator fits here perfectly as an application to support
34 authentication and authorization facilities.
