Authentication takes many forms and has evolved from usernames and passwords, single factor to multi-factor, to risk-based authentication prompts. It is a vital part of any customer identity and access management system to provide secure access to applications and is often a battle between balancing usability and security.Try WSO2 Identity Server
Strong authentication helps to prove or confirm one’s identity so the right user has access to the resource in question. Username and passwords were the stepping stones in providing access or authenticating a user, but with phishing attacks and data breaches, user authentication needed to be complex to secure the user and the resource. Therefore authentication needs to be more robust and provide additional factors to increase security. These factors can be a knowledge factor, ownership factor, or an inherence factor. Examples would include a password or a pin (knowledge factor), phone or security tokens such as one time passwords (ownership factor) or biometric data (inherence factor). Strong authentication could take the form of Multi Factor Authentication or adaptive authentication.
