The use of a two factor system to authenticate users to access online services is not new but a topic of great interest to Janet and the UK research and education community. Recently, conversations have taken place across various groups and stakeholders regarding the benefits (or not) of using two factor, and around the various options there exist.

This community group has been set up to create a point where experiences and ideas, and use cases for two factor authentication can be made and discussed.


In some online services specific functions to be carried out present good use cases for adding increased assurance to the authentication of the user logging in to perform such a task, for example to sign domains with DNSSEC or for the approval of Extended Validation SSL certificate requests.
