Electronic Authentication provides a level of assurance as to whether someone or something is who or what it claims to be in a digital environment. It is the process of establishing confidence in user identities electronically presented to an information system. It is also an essential component of any strategy to protect information systems and networks, financial data, personal information and other assets from unauthorised access or identity theft. ElectronicAauthentication is therefore essential for establishing accountability online. Multifactor authentication is generally more secure than single-factor authentication.
