IIA Two Factor Authentication Pilot
[1 Sep 2005] Lockstep was engaged to architect a national 2FA Pilot.
The Internet Industry Association (IIA) has championed the importance of Two Factor Authentication in future e-commerce. Starting with its Authentication Virtual Taskforce, and working through an extensive industry survey, the IIA has articulated a vision for an industry-driven and open scheme with broad application in retail Internet business and government service delivery. The IIA engaged Lockstep Consulting to scope out the envisaged scheme, and thus develop a 'blueprint', comprising strategic business model, operational model and technical interface specs.
The Pilot is planned to begin in early 2006, and will support several two factor authentication technologies across a wide range of online service providers.
