2 Factor: General Discussion


The Blog of Tom Webster

Abstract

2-Factor authentication is pretty great. Everyone should use it! Everywhere! For all the things! It is completely and utterly foolproof and perfect in every way!!!!! Wait.. that doesn't sound right... 2-Factor authentication has problems, let's talk about them. This talk is a general discussion about what I use and what I perceive are the main problems with 2FA.
