First Steps with Two Factor Authentication
Your password is not, and will never again be, good enough. Whether you are using services from Google or other providers, increasingly, you are being asked to provide another level to authentication, which is good for all of us. But, as a home user or beginning Systems Administrator, how do you get started with some of these technologies yourself?
This presentation will cover a few soft token tools (Duo Security, Google Authenticator), as well as the recent iterations of Yubikeys.
Brian MacLeod is a Systems Engineer at the Georgia Institute of Technology, supporting research on high performance computing resources with the Partnership for Advanced Computing Environment (PACE) team.
