1Kosmos BlockID: 2FA and MFA Capabilities



Many legacy systems do not support strong authentication or federated login. These typically rely on a username and password, which are susceptible to many forms of compromise.

There are several ways to strengthen the login of these types of systems:

  • Introduce identity-based authentication to replace usernames and passwords and implement biometric authentication.
  • Introduce more factors (2FA or MFA) to the existing login process.
This white paper discusses the MFA capabilities of the BlockID platform, including one-time passwords, external hardware tokens, and push messages.
