Controlling who has access to what data is a central theme of information security. Security built around passwords is too easy to defeat. User authentication becomes even more important when the user is remote. Whether users are dialling in from home into a RAS solution or using a VPN connection these links provide the single most vulnerable link into a network. If an electronic identity can be faked the connection will provide an open path in the system.

Strong authentication addresses any of the vulnerabilities of single authentication. Furthermore, this stops an authorised user accidentally accessing another user's resource and allows that administrator to track all events linked to each individual user where necessary.
Strong authentication can be achieved by incorporating more than one means of authentication: Something you have. Something you know. Something you are.
