Basics of Two Factor Authentication

Two-factor token-based authentication using one-time passwords has proven to be the most secure method to access critical information and applications. Two-factor authentication is stronger because it uses:

Dual factor authentication from Rapidsoft Systems verifies that it is actually the legitimate user in possession of the second factor and not another person who has stolen the mobile phone or is using malware to intercept the communication. It delivers a type of challenge-response on the user’s mobile phone for completely out-of-band, multi-layered authentication on the second factor device. The Rapidsoft Systems app can be installed on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Android devices. Its two factor capability has been successfully integrated via the mobile network. The Two factor server manager manages all registered users.

Rapidsoft Systems provides server based connectors to integarte Google Apps, SugarCRM, Joomla, and other SaaS applications, offering a federated Single Sign-On (SSO) service. The app also supports the OAuth protocol, so you can integrate it into your website access control in minutes.

The Rapidsoft Mobile authenticator can integrate with user data residing in MS Active Directory, LDAP-based or SQL-based directories. This is a safe way for any organization to protect users' accounts and authorization to access sensitive web resources or internet applications.

Out-of-Band, Two-Factor Authentication

More businesses today are deploying two-factor authentication for users in order to improve security. However, the most common approaches including soft tokens and sending authentication codes as a plain text SMS message are not secure. Rapidsoft's two factor authemntication uses a secure SMS channel and all messages are encrypted using 256 bit encryption/decryption keys.

The Process Is Entirely Out-of-Band

The entire authentication process takes place out-of-band from the web session, making it much more secure than sending a code to the user's phone but then requiring the user to type it into the web page. The communication between the application on the phone and the API is a server-to-server communication which is more secure and less likely to be intercepted than a SMS communication.

Easier to Use

Relying on the mobile phone as a second factor is much more convenient for users than carrying hardware tokens, USB drives or smartcards. It's also more affordable for the business because there is no need to purchase, distribute and maintain expensive physical devices. Additionally, people have a natural ability to remember categories and recognize pictures. Touching/tapping a few pictures that match their chosen categories is much easier for people than trying to correctly copy a long alphanumeric code from their phone to the web page without making mistakes.
