Multi Factor Authentication

Multi Factor Authentication is when granting access to resources only after a user has successfully provided multiple forms of identity evidence.

It typically involves information spanning at least two of the following categories of information: knowledge (something they know); possession (something they have), and inherence (something they are). Typical consumer examples of multi factor authentication include a combination of username/password and a second factor passcode sent via SMS to a mobile phone in their possession.
