CHERTOFF GROUP WHITE PAPER HIGHLIGHTS THE NEED FOR STRONG AUTHENTICATION IN CYBERSPACE

In response to the increasing incidence of authentication-based cyber-attacks – primarily exploiting the myriad weaknesses of passwords – policy makers around the world are developing policies and regulations focused on driving the adoption of multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions that can prevent password-based attacks and better protect critical transactions, data, communications and infrastructure.  This paper examines the current state of threats associated with inadequate authentication, reviews the types of technologies available on the market today to address these threats, and outlines eight key principles for governments to consider as they craft authentication policies and initiatives.
