Three Problems with Two Factor Authentication

One of the podcasts I listen to regularly is the SANS Internet Storm Center's "StormCast."

In addition to their podcasts, they have "diary" posts. Recently one of their contributors posted "Three Problems with Two Factor Authentication."

They actually listed 3 issues and "other gotchas."

Their list was:

0 - Usability
1 - Resetting the 2nd Factor
2 - Using a Token to Reset a Password

Now, being an engineer, I wasn't surprised by them beginning their count at "0."

But then they enumerated their "other gotchas."

4 - Other Gotchas

Where'd "3" go?

Very much worth the read!
