Options for two-factor authentication

Project ID: 
279
Current stage: 
Manager: 
Unit: 
Summary: 
Examine the options for two-factor authentication.
What: 

Stephen says: "It occurs to me that we should have project to examine the options for two-factor authentication. This could compare the methods of solving the problem (X509 versus OTP), and look at the various hardware devices available. It seems that some are very expensive but are likely to be much better supported, others will be really cheap but we would have to run extra services and potentially hack applications ourselves. I mentioned this to Alastair and he reckons this fits best as something led by the Inf Unit."

How: 
  • Invite interested parties to specify more exactly what is required (and whether or not they have specific ideas on how any such things might be implemented.)
  • Synthesize possible requirements.
  • Depending on requirements, attempt to prototype something reasonable.
