The InCommon/Net+ Multifactor Authentication Program

Time 04/22/13 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

Passwords really aren't good enough any
longer, yet many continue to use them, even for
access to highly critical services
and highly sensitive data. Why? Simple:
we've always done so. Others may forgo
multifactor authentication because they think it
is too expensive, too hard to deploy, or too
annoying to use. Those days are over!

This session will discuss new affordable and
easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use multifactor
alternatives from InCommon/Net+ that can augment
passwords with a second factor, thereby making it
far less likely that critical user accounts will
end up cracked and abused.

Topics covered will include options for pilot
scale projects (500 users and up) with zero
paperwork hassles for current InCommon members,
as well as a discussion of unique site license
options, plus a discussion of how (i) compliance
requirements drive the need for multifactor
authentication, (ii) the relationship between
multifactor authentication and the InCommon
Assurance Program, (iii) multifactor work
happening in conjunction with Internet2's NSTIC
scalable privacy grant, (iv) integration of
multifactor solutions with federated
authentication, and (v) a discussion of what the
community would like to see when it comes to
future biometric offerings in the multifactor
