The risks of authenticating with digital certificates exposed
Certs are not mature enough to provide client side authentication. The technology has evolved in the direction of 2FA and MFA. With this, companies can ensure that their staff are unambiguously identified, as only the correct combination of user details and an OTP permits a successful login on any device owned or shared. The use of tokenless MFA software is also associated with other advantages, such as cost savings and easy deployment. In addition, employees can simply use their existing mobile devices that they generally carry around with them anyway. And in terms of life cycle management, they can upgrade their phone without logging a support call or leaving their identity on their previous device, split seed records ensure greater security as a result of the regulated use of 7 only one device that acts as the “hardware token” which is then used to authenticate all other logins on any other device including its self.
