Multifactor Authentication Approaches and Multifactor for InCommon Silver
Multifactor authentication (also referred to as two-factor authentication) adds another level of complexity and security to a password-only arrangement. Interest in multifactor continues to grow, as some federal agencies move in that direction. InCommon has added service offerings in this area, as well, and some schools now plan to use a second factor as a way to meet the requirements of the InCommon Silver Assurance Profile.
Join our speakers to learn the basics about multifactor authentication, the pros and cons of different approaches to multifactor, and how one campus plans to use this approach for InCommon Silver
