Bill Bartlett will review 3 methods of adding a Second Factor Authentication based on possession of a personal device to a .NET web application. The 3 methods are, Google Authenticator app on a smartphone, Yubikey tokens, and FIDO Universal Second Factor (U2F) tokens. He will start with a review of why passwords are not adequate and review the benefits of a challenge/response model of authentication. He will then break down each of the 3 2FA solutions and compare the UX, TCO and the inherent security and risks. Finally, He will run a demo that shows all 3 methods. Bill will talk about implementation of all 3 methods and have the source code available if there are specific questions.
