Multifactor Authentication in Higher Education

The classic case for multifactor authentication is the need for higher-assurance authentication for transactions that expose the institution to significant risk. Another driver is the desire of some end-users and system administrators to self-select for heightened security. The U.S. Department of Education plans to require two-factor authentication for assets that are part of the Federal Student Aid program. Join us for an overview on the topic and participate in a discussion of business drivers, technology options, potential barriers, and current implementations of multifactor authentication.
