Secure Authentication

Two-factor authentication replaces traditional user name and password with strong identity-based authentication.

Two-factor authentication is defined as using something that you have in combination with something that you know in order to gain physical or logical access to something.  When using identity-based digital certificates for two-factor authentication, the certificate is stored on a hardware device (i.e., smart card or USB token), which is password protected.

  • The first factor is the hardware password that only you should know.  This password is used to access the certificate that is stored on your hardware device.
  • The second factor is your digital certificate stored on hardware and of which only you should have possession.

When these two factors are used in combination, two-factor authentication is achieved.
