2FA (Two-Factor Authentication)

2FA/MFA wireless authentication using proximity detection for faster login and more secure logout.

What is 2FA?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the security authentication method that requires two pieces of predetermined evidence (factors) before being granted authorization. 2FA is a subset of multi-factor authentication (MFA), the difference is the number of factors. Simply two layers of security required before a user can access an account or system. The most common examples of authentication factors used are passwords, PINs, hardware tokens, and biometrics.

There are five different types of authentication:

1) Possession factor - something you have

  • Hardware token
  • Software token
  • ID Badge
  • OTP token

2) Knowledge factor - something you know

  • Password/Passphrase
  • PIN
  • Touchscreen swipe

3) Inherent factor - something you are

  • Fingerprint scan
  • Facial scan
  • Vein scan
  • Voice recognition

4) Location factor - somewhere you are

  • Geography (geo-location)
  • IP Address
  • Local proximity

5) Behavioral factor - something you do

  • Handwriting style
  • Typing speed
  • Movement dynamics
  • Motion sensors
