- Multifactor authentication.
This is an electronic authentication process wherein a computer user is afforded accessibility to a website or an application only subsequent to successfully offering two or more chunks of factors to an authentication methodology. This safeguards the user from hackers trying to steal the user’s data like a personal ID or financial properties.
- Two-factor authentication:
This feature is a kind of or subdivision of multifactor authentication. It is a procedure of authenticating the identities offered by users by making use of a mixture of two different factors by putting something to use that the user knows (password) and something they have or something they are.
This authentication happens, when the user wants to sign in to a computer application like network, device, resource, etc. This resource needs the user to give the identity by which the user is identified by the resource, together with proof of identity claimed. Normally the authentication requires only one- factor, i.e., just a password. But to add up to the security, the resource needs multifactor – authentication or two-factor authentication, where two pieces of proof need to be provided.
The idea behind multiple authentications is to confirm the user’s identity and is dependent on the logic that an unauthorized user is not likely to offer the credentials needed for accessibility. In case, in a trail to authenticate, a minimum of one of the factors is not offered correctly, the user’s identity remains unestablished for sure, and accessibility to the data or properties is safeguarded by multifactor authentication.
Here is a good example for two – factor authentication that is deployed in an ATM for withdrawal of money. The correct combination bank card and a PIN enables the transaction to get through.
