Two Factor Authentication and You w/ Chris Stone

Everyone has at least one password, but that's not enough anymore. When is that not enough? Passwords get out of your hands all the time. You know your password, but what about using something you have in addition to what you know. Let's look at how you can leverage your mobile device for added security, and implement it in your projects. This talk will cover how two factor auth works, how to use it and the ins and outs of rolling your own solution using Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) (and the Google Authenticator app) or a third party service and the pitfalls of both. AWS, Mailchimp, Dropbox and Facebook integrate two factor authentication and you can too! There's no reason not to use it!

    Seemed like there was a lot of unnecessarily in-depth explanation of the three two-factor methods (particularly email and SMS). A lot of the information presented was very common knowledge and common sense (ie it doesn't need to be explained that email can be delayed due to network traffic or SMS doesn't work if our phone is incapable of SMS). But this may not be applicable depending on the target audience--I was expecting more of a technical perspective.

      Sorry everybody. We had a mixup with the venue but Eric should be out front. I'm not able to attend tonight, compounding things.

      Apologies, and we'll triple-confirm next time.
