2 Factor Authentification for secure remote access

The security of IT and Internet applications, e.g. remote access to computers and networks, is of enormous importance. Therefore the user authentification process should be designed as securely as possible in order to prevent unauthorized access. Passwords alone do not perform this task sufficiently. They can be read via special programs or captured during transmission. You can also not prevent that passwords are passed on without permission. Therefore the identity check via password alone (1 Factor) poses a security risk. Considering this the 2 Factor Authentification therefore is an ideal solution. In addition to password as factor 1 which can be assigned with the attribute ‚knowledge‘, a second factor ‚possession‘ is used for authentification of users. ‚Possession‘ in this case is a chip card, a token or a secure stick. In order to pass such a 2 Factor Authentification successfully the user must overcome two barriers. This naturally makes attacks significantly more difficult and unlikely.
